Yup. I'll be there. And the first time in a couple of years without kids too!
Thanks for all this effort. I'm confused by the bug information, is it fixed or isn't it? It also said it last worked in 6u31, yet you're running 6u35. Mmm. Curiouser and Curiouser.
I have one of these and a whole bunch of motors for it. Next time you see me at SMP, we can talk about it.
I can't fire or up right now, but usually this means, either the rocket is unstable, or the boosters don't tumble soon enough. Edit the simulation an on the second tab try setting the time step to...
I think I'm still on the outside of that inside joke.
The file you downloaded should have been named OpenRocket-13.05.jar You need to open it with Java and not WinZip. There is no install process - the only thing you need is this jar file. ...
Those look really nice! Have to say, even though I worked on some of this, I still can't figure out how to use it! What you guys come up with is wonderful.
I'm going to have to get me some Kinex. What a great idea.
Why is it, every time I try to build a "beater" rocket, I end up spending a bunch of hours filling, sanding, filling, sanding, priming, sanding, filling, sanding, painting, sanding, painting,...
From what I can tell, the boosters are marginally unstable - in any case being able to find them falling from 800m will be pretty tough! I suspect they will end up gliding in which is what's causing...
Though I don't dispute Rex's numbers, I think there is something else going on. It seems the boosters are only marginally unstable and they don't seem to enter tumble recovery mode. I'm not saying...
I'm still digging into it, but the sustainer hits 989meters at apogee. But you'll have to look into the deployment times of the streamers.
Seems it's having troubles simulating the descent of the...
The fin can is in Rocksim because it's included in it's default component library. It's not in the OpenRocket component library. However, you can download the .rkt file for the fin can and open it...
Cool! I guess you could also import the fin can then build the rest of the rocket on top of it.
Currently OpenRocket doesn't support importing complex structures like fincans or motor adaptors, etc. The best way to do this would be to build the fin can using individual parts then overriding...
Wow, that's a lot of work. I cut the adapter tube down so my 29/180 case extends about 1/2" past the motor tube. A few wraps of tape around the motor and you have a block on the inside.
Thanks for that. Now I'll be singing it in my head all day long. Though I think "Monster" and "Invisible Friend" are better songs on that album.
I tried it with an aerotech retainer.
Thanks. PM sent for more information.
Sorry for the troubles. Can you send some information about the kinds of macs you are using?
The default paint on components is black. You need to edit the components and on the appearance tab change the color.
Got mine yesterday and put it together. It seems to fit the CTI Pro29 aft retainer as well. Wish I had bought two.
This is what I think is happening. The texture is being translated by a certain amount (-0.1 in your case). But this translation essentially pushes the top (or bottom) of the letters out of...
If you set offset x = -0.2 it seems to look ok. At least all the letters are visible.
Yes I did. Unfortunately, I'm not a graphics kind of guy - so I couldn't do much with it. I played around with the scaling of some (in the Appearance menu) and got it to work, though I didn't...
The problem appears to be with the way the graphic is set up and the use of scaling. Basically, with the graphic scaled, it over laps itself, so the text gets occluded. Try reworking the...
And here it is with a little paint. Ready to fly!
