Got a Mobius mini and am wondering how to model the camera shroud in OpenRocket. Ideas anyone?

If you're wondering how to model it aerodynamically, I've had good results by adding an extra "sim-only" nose cone with a surface area equal to the shroud. Looks weird, and not perfect, but using this I've gone from simming 120 ft over to within 10ft of what my altimeter said.

The default is 3... you can change that though.
