Default Mini-Comanche 3 Estes 002448

Does anyone have a fin template or a fully dimensioned drawing of the fins and their thicknesses as well as the actual nosecone length for the Estes Mini-Comanche 3 (002448)? I created a RockSim file for the flight simulation of this kit from a downscale of the original kit and need this information to create a more accurate flight simulation.

Thanks in advance,

The nose cone used in the Mini Comanche-3 is the PNC-20A. That nose cone is used in many BT-20 kits (i.e. Wizard, Viking, Nike-Apache, etc.). The balsa sheet is 1/16" thick.

Mike,

Thanks for the fin template and other information. I attached the RockSim file I created for the Estes Mini Comanche 3 (#002448) along with several screen shots from the flight simulations.
