I don't mind at all especially considering that Estes has stopped producing and selling the BT-56 tubing and the fin cans. We really needed a 3d model of the fin can to be designed.

The only problem I have with it is that the fin can really needs to be flight tested first just to ensure that it works before you sell them. I have printed one and the fins seem to be as strong or stronger than the mass-produced version, but testing first is the best way to go.
