Re: 54mm 3 grain flights Plain Jane - Loki White (J820 star grain)

I like that one for a silly reason - you can clearly see the LED light from the MARSA on the vent band :) That was pretty cool to see! I love all of the pics. Great detail on a propellant that I have come to love making and flying. I wish someone had grabbed a pic of the 54/1750 moon burn Plain Jan...

Re: Mongoose 75FG

Sucks to see the quality and service from Rocketry Warehouse suffering so badly. Those fin bevels are ugly and their service is uglier.

Re: Mix Party-March 2016

Well Dan is saying he will bring and fly his 3.72" Proteus Downscale rocket to the URRG April launch. I think he's planning on making a motor for that too. Those grains have been sitting in my box for a few years now. Need to sand them a bit and load them up. It's not just making fuel. We talk...

This is 13 miles NE of Syracuse and about 7 miles from the Thru-Way. I hope it's not cloudy, I don't want you to get...

Re: 3.72" Proteus Downscale

Continuing on with ththe nose cone. I said it wasn't interestning, but here is the nose bulkhead anyways! I drilled a small vent hole in it, just in case. image.jpeg Next, I prepped the BH and coupler by sanding and wiping with alcohol. Since I wanted the BH to be recessed for more space, I sourced ...

Re: 3.72" Proteus Downscale

...progress? Bulkheads! 0.25" thick G10 ones! Heavy and overkill, but on hand and machinable. image.jpg Fit nicely in my coupler: image.jpg I also cut one for my nose cone, not exciting enough to show. This rocket is slated to fly at the April URRG launch on a 76/4700 red. I'll need to run some...

Re: minimal supportive ematch hardware for chute deployment

It's certainly a unique approach. I like that it's very streamlined and small, but obviously have the same concerns as you regarding how secure it is. Adept has offered something alone these lines for a long time: http://www.adeptrocketry.com/HAR22cart.htm "The ends of the two wire pairs that c...

Performance Rocketry - Built and Flown

I have a lot of overlap for 54mm rockets. Looking to pass this Intimidator 3 off to a good home that will clean it up and send it skyward again. This is the Performance Rocketry version of the rocket, not the new Wildman. Information can be found here: http://www.wildmanrocketry.com/ProductDetail.as...
