I didn't say USING. I said FLYING!

I've made lots of rockets out of assorted CDs. AOL CDs seem to be my favorite. They make great spool rockets. I've even got a RAID-5 that's a stack of 5 AOL CDs on a BT20 body tube. And another spool out of a pair of mini-CDs. DVDs too.

But the Rocksim CD is a single disk rocket. Think spool without the top disk. Just run a 13mm MMT through the center, and add a hole for the launch lug. Works great. Not sure if Rocksim can model anything like that, as I've never used it. I still use the software I wrote in college that started life on punched cards.
I fought the law, and the law LOST!
