Model Rocket

So this is an experiment thread since it's already built.

I'm trying to think of a way to have the launch pad be positionally adjustable, but since the Rootframe has to be the top of the hierarchy, I can't think of a way to make this possible. I thougt it would be cool to be able to position the rocket towards the wind as you would a real one, but you need to adjust the angle of the rod and make the base swivel about. Modeling the pivot points and making the launch pad make these movements is easy, but I'm pretty sure the rocket will stay in place or do something weird.

I'll experiment with it and see if it is easier than I imagine.

Don't let physical inactivity take away your health. It's a hard lesson for those of us with desk jobs, but also for those that work at home from a PC as a second source of income. I'm lucky to still be alive.
