Default Centuri Point KC-13

I created this simulation file for the out of production Centuri Point, unlike the file posted for the Semroc kit, this simulation includes the recovery phase of the models flight.

Nice looking Point, and thanks for the .rkt file. I see you included a C6-3 sim, I've always used a B4-2 - does it fly well on a C6-3?

The original instructions for the Centuri Point (enter this address: http://www.spacemodeling.org/jimz/c...Point/kc-13.pdf
into the Wayback Machine at https://archive.org/web/) indicates a B4-2 motor only.

However the Semroc Clone (KV-58) instructions: http://www.semroc.com/Documents/pdf/Point.pdf
indicate that "It is recommended that you use a B4-2 for your first flight. It is a gentler flight than the other choices. A B6-2 can also be used as a second choice. A C6-3 can be used, but it has a long delay for the Point so it will eject on the way down. If you use a C6-3, make sure your recovery area is soft. Donít fly a C6-3 on your first flight in case it is not stable."

I may have to fly mine on a C6-3 and see how is does.
