Here I sit, thinking I have a lot of painting to do, so instead I have been working on a new project, a scale of the Trident I SLBM. I really couldn't put my fingers on any good dimensions, but I found a few drawings with length and diameter and have kind of winged the rest.
I am looking at using 1/8 inch thick lexan for the fins and to counteract all of that weight in the back, a bunch of weight in the nosecone.
Overall length is about 35 inches with a diameter of about 5.4 inches.
Nose cone made of balsa, plus weight comes in at roughly 19 ounces.
So my first question is will the standard Aerotech ejection charge push out the nose cone and a 58 inch chute. (As you can see from the rocksim info, it is only marginally stable without a motor. With an H242T, margin goes to 0.69. So More weight will be added in the front)
Chute may seem too big (and maybe it is), but currently my estimated weight is over 2000 grams.
I've attached the rocksim layout.
