That is a nice looking design. Someone else it seems has been using RockSim 9...

Sweet! And I like the range of motors it can use too.

Yes - this is indeed a Shrox design. Shrox is identified as designer in Rocksim file available on the Apogee web-site. I've been waiting for this one as I think it is a great design.

Got an email today from Apogee - mine was shipped out this afternoon!

Spoiler Alert!

Everybody, you really want to look at the RockSim 9 file that's been posted on the Apogee website for this rocket. Somebody didn't pay full attention to the static margin...

Load a D12-5 into the model and look carefully!

Call me crazy, but it seems like this would be a perfect model to use those new E and F 28 mm engines coming out from Quest. It looks like it would need a different tail cone and a 28 mm to 24 mm adapter. Hummmmm...

But a D12-5 is not on the list of recommended motors (Idon't have RS 9)
