5. Basic Flight Simulation[edit]

Since we have included pre-made example designs with which to experiment, it is entirely possible to start your OpenRocket experience by running simulations instead of designing rockets. However as the program is quite intuitive, it would probably work well either way. If you do decide to start by running a simulation, we recommend you start with the 'A simple model rocket' example. Use this design to work through the Flight Simulations tab, where you can either edit an existing or add a new simulation to the list of those already included. Note also that the Motors & Configuration tab will allow you to observe the effects of changing thrust parameters on rocket design and performance.
