Re: EJECTION CHARGE!!??

Something like this.. http://oi64.tinypic.com/ngr0bb.jpg Firstly, what was not reliable about them? Timing or quantity or something else? We can provide BP, however that requ...

Re: Joe Turners L2 Build Thread

Blake advised me that this rocket should be flyable with a lower-powered M motor. Just to clarify, that wouldn’t have been my exact words coz those rockets when built correctly will take a big M motor too ;-) You have done a great job assembling it, so expect wit would work on almost all motors you...

Re: Motor Matrix Offline?

The motor matrix link doesn't work for me (two browsers tried : FF & Chrome) I find it quite useful (propellant tables and what not) - are you revamping it or killing it off? Ahhh sorry about that. We are revamping it. It has had a few issues whilst we upgrade the entire site, so is more of a s...

Re: Complete Newbie - Clusters and Clamps and Control (Oh No!)

Hi Dmeeze,

Just a quick clarification on wording etc.
Guidance = DO NOT DO THIS!
Stability Control = Absolutely!
