Default Thrustline Aerospace Hank Plans

The link below will take you to the plans for the Hank kit.

Each plan set also includes a RockSim file for the kit. That's a good thing since nowhere could I find a parts list of tubing type, length, etc. I'd appreciate it if someone with RockSim or OpenRocket will give me a hand by adding a reply to this post listing the parts type/size you extract from the RockSim file. If you could include the templates from the RockSim file I'd appreciate that as well.

These Thrustline Aerospace plans are for PERSONAL USE ONLY! John Rowan-Stern and Thrustline Aerospace reserves all commercial use rights.

Yes, it's odd that John (or whoever supplied the sim to John) simmed it with the PNC. *shrug* All good.
