Started the Rocksim design phase early August. Got this done in time for Midwest Power. Flown on K535.

Love that Cricut machine!

I'm not usually a fan of short, fat rockets but that looks amazing! It has a unique style and great look. I really like it!

Thank you. But, it is not my design. It is an upscale of a currently unavailable, very small rocket from Odd'l Rockets. I did stretch the body tube a couple of inches to give me better stability otherwise a close representation of the original, I think.

Thank you again!

Good to see the Squatty Body flying again!
