Re: Two stage (InterStage) Design?

Joeman, tbh, I think you're really overthinking this one... Not to say there's anything wrong with your design per se, just that it's probably overtly complex for what you're attempting. I've had 4 MD staging attempts across three stacks that were all failures but from a stage separation perspective...

Re: Question for L3 flyers

Do you remember your first rocket kit and the motor you used.... Sadly I don't. That said given it would have been 30+ years ago I expect I should cut myself some slack. I built a large number of Estes rockets as a kid, both at home and Space Camp. I still regret the fact that I didn't finish the A...

NASA Wallops Sounding Rocket Lecture Series, Part 1

If you can make it past the intro madness it's quite a good presentation.

Maybe you can design a guided parachute recovery system?

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! The trust vectoring device, fin control and other items are all for stability control . The way I like to look at it is that mature stability control system can provide a safer flight wh...

Re: Something small and fast

Oh, didn't realise this, though all my photo's are still in the WWW2017 thread and WARS launch threads, not sure what that means.... As for Google, I must've edited my post in the WWW thread at least 20 times with different links and bbcodes etc trying to get the damned things to show. I could be w...

SWEET! If I'm being honest I expect to be closer to 12k', not 10k'.

Re: Something small and fast

Strange. TBH I'm not sure if the fault lies with the forum or Google. .... Ah, yeah it's Google. I tried embedding Google photo's a while back(edit: for WWW2017) and it drove me nuts, I gave up and opened an Imgur account, easy peesy. I learned soon after that you need to use an embed code generato...

Re: Something small and fast

Yeah looked at them before but have heard reports of issues keeping the chute wrapped. Would be nice is Blake stoked them :wink: I'd prefer if he made his own. From my understanding the product I use appeared on the market within weeks of Charles Ogino (Carolina Composite Rocketry) answering a larg...

Re: Something small and fast

Nice Drew... there is talk of a similar rocket in QLD, so it would be awesome for you to smash out a super high flight to give the east coast something to aim for ;-) Giving this a little more thought why don't y'all bring that bird along for WWW2018!?!?! I doubt we'd be able to drag (we only have ...
