Default Estes Apache 2

Hey Scott, I was perusing through the plans and opened up the Apache 2 file and noticed you need a fin pattern. You already have the pattern for the Centuri Tiger Streak. They are both the exact same rocket.

FYI I bought this kit in unopened bag on ebay a couple of years ago and can't say enough about it. I fly it at the club every time out, and love to put a C in the booster. It really scoots and recovers well with the streamer.

I built it to use 24 mm C11/D12 engines. And got it back when I launched it on a D12/D12 combination. I have an old Aerotech E6-0 and E6-8 (with some thermalite) I am itching to try someday.

Problem is that the only image for the Apache 2/Tiger Streak (oldrocketplans.com) are really pixilated. I find I can't trust the numbers I'm getting for it due to that problem.

I know that the boosters fin is 2.75" at the root, but I'm not going to commit to a root edge on the sustainer's fin.

I have yet to try printing/scaling the image of the fins from the plans, but unless someone comes up with a decent image of the fins, it'll be what I have to do.

Got my hands on one... The box it was shipped in was impaled, and the body tube was crushed. However the fins made it through fine.



Oh, and here's the decals
