I had to be amused at that, too.

I will say that to his credit the RSO who DQ'd that flight has some suggestions to help my second flight not get DQ'd while using the same model design. (He happened to be the CD for NARAM-61) It also helped that he wasn't the RSO for my second flight in that event that day....

So: I've acquired the parts I didn't have (turns out, all I had were the tubes) for this build. Thanks to Dan W. for the transition and others who offered to help. While I'm waiting for the parts to arrive, I twiddled around in Open Rocket to try and figure out tube lengths, fin patterns etc. (Still looking for Instructions and fin tracings if anyone has them). This is what I came up with below. I'll tweak it as needed when I have all the parts. (I also ordered a digital Scale to use for this build)

Hey Al - good to see you back as well!!

No, still donít have the plans. If you could measure the
Tubes and trace the fins, that would be great!!

Thanks,

Sean

Default 3 versions?

All this talk about the Pirate got me thinking that I actually own one of these kits.

Yep. I found it.

It looks to me like this is yet another version based on the fact that my kit has elliptical fins...
