I'd like to fly it offset. Is there any downside to offsetting them slightly less than perfectly? Just enough to allow for the rod? Thanks.


Iíve flown stagers with fins not quite perfectly offset between booster and sustainer, to clear a launch lug. No problems.

By the way, you have perhaps the most attractive rocket bench / rocket room I think Iíve ever seen!
