Flight of the Apex

I uploaded 21 pictures of the Apex flight to my flikr site
Apex launch, orbit, re-entry, landing pics

Today I made an honest effort to learn how the aerodynamics values work for spacecraft.dll, mostly because, as much as I liked my mystic add-on, it was crap when it came time to re-enter, forget half-assed, I didn't even bother trying, I just used the generic "CAPSULE" aerodynamic values. Apex on the other hand is way different, it works the way is should work, its not a bucking bronco like mystic, and the parachute works properly.

I still have to add the docking port, Canadarm grapple point, thruster and main engine locations to the Apex configs. But then it will be done
