Re: Mix Party-(March) April 2016 - Post review

We had a good time at Paul's shop this Saturday. Although only a few showed up it was still good to do some mixing and enjoy each others company. In attendance was Paul Gagnon, (of course), Roger Forrell, Greg and Donna Jo Elling, and myself. While Greg and I put together a tracking smoke mix, Roger...

Re: Mix Party-March 2016

Hi everyone, We are one week out for our next mix party on Saturday April 2nd, so I thought I'd at least let you all know of one thing I'll be doing there. This next Saturday I will be mixing and pouring some full diameter smoke grains for my 98 mm, 75mm and 54mm cases. I'll also be going over some ...

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.

Re: XXtreme Blue

I have been needing to make new sled to fit my MARSA54L altimeters but I still want to be able to use them in most of my rockets. So this is what I've come up with: IMG_20160321_184902_697.jpg IMG_20160321_190525_602.jpg This following photo shows how both altimeters will fit into the altimeter bay....

Re: XXtreme Blue

So this is one of my sleds that are a standard build that fits most of my altimeters. The battery clip is a standard 9volt battery holder IMG_20160321_191201_484.jpg This here is one of my Perfectflite MAWD's, the tubes mounted on the sides of the sled are spaced to fit on the all thread that I have...

Re: XXtreme Blue

Here are the two switches installed: IMG_20160322_155437_157.jpg As I mentioned before, due to the thickness of the airframe I was able to screw these switches in alleviating the need for the back nut. IMG_20160322_155359_912.jpg Take note of the stop nuts on the threaded rod, they are what my altim...

Never said I was good with directions, did I? ;)

548 State Rt 31, Bridgeport, NY. 13030. If you are using a GPS use (548 Lake Rd, Bridgeport, NY 13030). This is 13 miles NE of Syracuse and about 7 miles from the Thru-Way.

Re: XXtreme Blue

Here is the top bulk head of the Altimeter bay. IMG_20160316_154230_728.jpg IMG_20160316_154254_120.jpg You can see the leads and the charge wells here. As this end is towards the main chute bay I'm using bigger charge wells here. The Drogue end has 3/4" caps and the Main end has 1" caps. ...

Re: XXtreme Blue

Now I'm working on the charge connectors, I'm making 4 lead sets for this rocket. Each lead is a length of 26 gauge two lead wire, two connectors soldered on and some shrink tubing. With an 8-32 screw and nut through the connector IMG_20160315_193830_416.jpg Here are the two drogue sets installed in...
