First Run and Startup

The first time that you run Rocketry Tools the screen at the right will appear. This shows the progress as the program places the thrust curve files onto your SD card. This process only happens the first time that you run the program, but if at some time you wish to re-run this process there is an option in the settings menu to do so. You may want to re-install the motor thrust curves if at some point you decided to delete some of them and then want them back.

You can add your own thrust curves if you want to or delete thrust curves that you do not want from the program. The thrust curves are located on your SD card in the directory /RocketryTools/ThrustCurves/.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each time that you run Rocketry Tools the screen at the right will appear for a short time. This shows the progress as the program loads the motor thrust curves into memory. The specific thrust curves that are loaded can be controlled by settings in the Settings Menu. There you can control which manufacturers motors get loaded and specify what range of motors that you normally fly with. This allows you to customize the loaded motor set to your liking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the thrust curves have been loaded you may also see this screen. While this screen is displayed the program is loading your saved rockets into memory.
