Hey Brian The guys here in TX with Space X were thankful for these upgrades and they really look and fly great. I know you saw the new carbon fins so keep another upgrade in mind.

Super job !!!!

They are. The previous generation were made of lightweight aluminium and were smaller and required an ablative coating as the TPS to protect them from the entry heating. These new fins, being manufactured from titanium, doesn't require a TPS due to titanium's higher melting point (1668C).

when we lowered the first stage on to the transporter I felt of the fins and felt like the carbon nose of the shuttle and had a little black soot on it. one of the engineers walking by said it was carbon but you guys are right they are made of titanium

Hi Tex, cool! I always enjoy your vids Don't forget, it's Donamy who made that rather photogenic mesh. I just added the automation

Well, great work - both of you! I've been enjoying this addon while I'm stuck indoors during Hurricane Harvey.
