    This si My Aspire form Binder Design.

    I was tiold that it' isn't as stable as it needs to be: Small fins.

    So, I've added 2 mroe fins fo a total of 5, and I've added a bit of noseweight. I've only flew her a few times.. This one, suprisingly, I've painted per the design!

    Ditto. The five fins is much better than the 3 fins and a nose cone.

    The only problem I see is more drag.

    My rockets usually fly naked. If they survive, they earn their paint.

    Come fly with ROSCo or ICBM in Camden SC => http://rocketrysouthcarolina.org

    Aww shucks, thanks guys!

    And the math to figure out where to cut the slots.. I did taper the fins.. That is, sanded the trailing edge to a fraction of the overall fin thickenss.. I think you can see that in the 1st pic, the lowest fin, how the shading changes....

    If I recall, the note was that the fins were on the small side, so I added. But, upon reflection, it's not the overall size but that they aren't high / tall enough to be in clean 'standing' air to be effective.. (they're in the boundery / turbulent layer)


    Oh, and I added the black underline to the logo decal

    hard to believe the kit only comes with an 18" chute?? I would think it would drop pretty fast with that and do some damage if it hit anything other than soft dirt or grass.
