Model Falcon9
Units Meters
Description Created this model to assist a friend with a school project. Purpose was to get decent mass estimates over the flight profile of a typical falcon9 flight. (change w/ fuel burn) also with right script, can generate a decent animation of fuel tank levels. User parameter 1 is time in seconds of first stage burn. User parameter 2 in time in seconds of second stage burn. public info / analysis were collected to make the mass / mass flow / O/F ratio along with various other estimates possible. no landing legs / grid fins modeled.
Source Quality

3 - The source material used to create this model was Good. This means good 3-view drawings were used to create the model.
