This year we will use thin wall BT70 and BT80 rocket tubes for all our rockets. This will allow us to have inter-changeable parts - cargo units nose cones, and boosters. We will need a transition piece from BT80 to BT70. The altimeter and two eggs will be in a cargo unit and the nose cone. We will also constrain ourselves to 24mm motors of the 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 is a design from team 18-4054 (OpenRocket file)
