I created this simple drift calculator to help with the discussion of how high we should launch rockets at our site. It includes all of the major effects except weather #######. I was thinking of running many sims in RockSim to include that effect, but decided I did not have the time (do I hear science fair project?). If the rocket goes downwind by over 2000 ft. or upwind in dual deployment mode by more than 1000 ft. the results are in red. I felt these were reasonable values to try to keep rockets (particularly larger rockets) on the main field based upon where we launch.
