Southern Cross Rocketry now included in Open Rocket

Postby SCR » Wed Jun 04, 2014 1:40 pm

We are excited to announce the SCR range of rocket motors are now included in the popular rocketry simulation software Open Rocket.

"21.05.2014: Version 14.05 is released! This release contains some minor features, bug fixes and updated thrust curves. New motor vendors Klima and Southern Cross Rocketry are included. The simulation will now compute optimum delay based on actual coast time. Components with CG and mass overrides are decorated with an icon in the component tree."

OpenRocket is a free, fully featured model rocket simulator that allows you to design and simulate your rockets before actually building and flying them.

You can download Open Rocket here: (requires Java)
