Re: Joe Turners L2 Build Thread

CTI have the instructions on their website, which You should make yourself farlmilar with. But you want to top up the charge not add the full amount again, otherwise you’ll end up with a rain of rocket parts. Also don’t forget to adjust that figure if you go with lower primary charge, I’d think 6.5g...

Re: Joe Turners L2 Build Thread

I’m thinking that pretty much boarder line there. Sure it does the job in this test, but on any given day there will be different conditions causing variation in the outcome. For instance different temperatures may result in tighter fits, perhaps you measure the charge slightly wrong or drop a bit, ...

Re: Joe Turners L2 Build Thread

Looks pretty good to me, plenty of energy but not stupid amounts. All the important bits are well out.
I wouldn’t wind the cord around your chute protector though, that’s asking for issues.
If you have a backup charge add 30% say 6.5g, should get you out of a sticky situation.

Re: SpaceX details its plans for landing 3 Falcon Heavy boosters

Great launch, it’s now heading most of the way out to the asteroid belt. Need to see if I can watch the post launch news conference. Apparently lots of debris from the water landing, drone ship has a couple of motor out. Also faring recovery has proven difficult, probably 6 months before we see that.

Re: Joe Turners L2 Build Thread

Joe, it’s about as short as you could possibly get away with. You need to carefully set your charges so it doesn’t cause an issue, motor deployment could be an issue here due to not being able to test it. I would not go so short, a longer cord will give more time for the kinetic energy to absorbed b...
