This year we will use 2.6in thin wall BT80 rocket tubes for all our rockets. This will allow us to have inter-changeable parts - cargo units nose cones, and boosters. The altimeter will be in a cargo unit and the eggs will be in the nose cone. We will also constrain ourselves to 24mm motors of the E and F class. This will help use get some consistency in the motor selections.

To create the overall design and then simulate launches,
we will use OpenRocket (

Here are two designs team 14212 finally came up with - a three-fin and a four-fin design.
