Exclamation New Design - Exoteria

This is one of those odd-ball designs that has been stuck in my brain for several years. I keep revisiting it to see if I can work out the details of mass balancing and general stability. The design is asymmetrical, with more mass on the "bottom" (ahem...), and requiring some sort of compensation on the top. In this design, I'm hoping I can create an equalling "drag force" to keep the nose pointed in the right direction.

This may require more tinkering to get it right, so consider this version as a Mk I...

Length: 37.00"
Diameter: 1.04" (ST-10 largest tube)
Fin Span: 14.45"
Weight: 2.23 oz


B6-4......AVG 325'......Dv AVG 14-15 FPS......3/16" x 48" launch rod


Enjoy!
