A few words of warning about the Big Daddy.

This rocket seems to be prone to lawndarts. The theory as to the reason why is the shape of the shoulder on the nosecone. It has a long "ramp" that seems to allow the ejection charge's gasses to vent without deploying the nosecone.

I strongly recommend that you modify the nosecone to prevent you from joining the ranks of those who've darted one of these.

That said, using kruegon's file as a foundation, I've created my own .ork file of it. https://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?123564-K-Tesh-s-OpenRocket-files&p=1604745#post1604745
