Would you mind sharing your solution? I was able to transform this using Rotate About a Point with a specified angle of 72 degrees and Number of Non-associative Copies set to 4. I'm just curious if you used a similar method or something different.

Here are my settings. You can use Instance or Copy. The point I specified is the point you put at the MCS origin. The vector I specified is the Z axis of the CSYS at the bottom of the part.
