    Hello all,

    I'm hoping someone can measure or photograph (w/ruler) the main & upper fin of Tim's new kit. I have created an .ork file upscaled from an Estes/NCR .rkt file I found on the Net, with corrected specs for Tim's 4" FG tubing. I am hoping to purchase Tim's version during his 2020 Black Saturday sale.

    Thx in advance.

    It isn't the Wildman kit but here is a Rocksim file for something I have been flying for what seems like a couple of decades now:

    Not sure if Tim is using the same dimensions as North Coast's Lance Beta, but there is a fair amount of information on this rocket available out there:


    North Coast Rocketry used to make a Lance Beta and provided the Rocksim file on their site (don't know if they still do). You can find them here: https://northcoastrocketry.com/

    Rocket Reviews has a Lance Beta Rocksim file for the Estes/NCR (North Coast Rocketry) model and can be found here: https://www.rocketreviews.com/unknown-estesncr-lance-beta.html

    Yet another site with Rocksim data on the NCR Lance Beta can be found here:

    Wildman's Lance Beta is a 4" upscale. The original was 3" diameter.

    Tobor,
    6" root chord. 5" leading edge. 1.25" Tip chord. 1 7/8" span height.
    Or I can bring it to the next launch...
    Maybe someday I'll glue them on... :rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Oops, both fins...
    Lower fins:
    15 3/16" root chord. 14" leading edge. 3 1/16" tip chord. 5 7/16" span height. These dimensions include fin tab length, which I believe is 7/8".

    Okay. This uploaded version includes the Aero Pack 4" Tailcone.

    Note that my version of the kit (previous post) deviates from Tim's stock kit. I added a 1" switchband for the way I want to configure the rocket.

    I have the kit currently and have the mmt assembled. Haven't glued it into airframe yet. No hurry... :rolleyes::rolleyes: I've only had the kit for a year ish...
    I also added a vent band. Mine might be 2".
