Does anyone have a Rocksim file for a SBR Li'l Thor?
If not, I'll have to make one when the kit arrives.

Here's what I have in Open Rocket. It looks like the newer kits come with a Top Flight chute instead of a streamer. I also don't worry about saving weight when I build and paint.

edit: updated the file.

Nate, you need to change the diameter and length of the nose weight to stop it from showing a blob.

I updated the file above. It is also viewable on Thrust Curve for a quick check on motors that will work.

I just removed the nose weight and overrode the total nosecone weight. When I added weight to the nose cone, I used epoxy brushed on the inside and outside of the 3D printed nosecone, with extra allowed to build up on the inside point of the nosecone. I also used a different motor mount than was included with the kit which had the right OD for the retainer I had on hand. It is a little shorter which is why the fin tabs on the forward set of fins aren't mated to the motor mount across their entire length.
