Open Rocket program. Simming a V2. How do I put fins on a transition?

Or attach them to the body tube and set their position at some distance from bottom of parent component.

Yup, I added a body tube 1mm long. Now trying to set their position. 90 degree does not set them space them correctly. Also, does OR have any pre set rocket designs?

This may be of use. A quick and dirty ORK from the Spacemonkey/Apogee RKT file. Used it to calc CP and it has a Qualman baffle installed. Note: the airframe weight has not been overridden to allow for the Spacemonkey plastic airframe weight.

Here's my Spacemonkey V2. I tried it later with a D21-7T but didn't work.
