Re: My little Chinese BALLS 2012 Project

It's been a tough year for me and rockets. New job and new place have me located about 100km's from home base where my shop is. The weekends just aren't as productive as they used to be. Anyhow, with the few days I have for Christmas, I decided to undo something I did two years ago. Remove DDT's Al ...

Re: Balls 23 - September 2014

Rest assured, you will have 100% support from myself, Nic and everyone else in our camp. Your design is sound, your prep will be perfect, we'll h...

Re: Optimize This! - my BALLS 23 Project

They will be pinned. The holes aren't there yet b/c I was waiting to receive them so I could match drill them to the tubes. There will also be a slot added to the inside end of the charge plug to allow the ematch wire to move to one side and the pin to pass straight through.

Thanks George!

Re: Optimize This! - my BALLS 23 Project

Early separation is always a concern and that is why there will be shear pins installed to prevent this. Due to the unconventional approach, I had to re-think how to get them in. This is one of the details I plan on hammering out next weekend. I do not want to put holes in the NC surface, especially...

Re: Optimize This! - my BALLS 23 Project

This build is alive an kickin' I'm just incredibly busy with work and this project. They are both occupying 110% of my time. Please excuse the brevity of this update and the build details.

Re: Optimize This! - my BALLS 23 Project

Quick update - The two parachutes on the right (solid orange, black) are new Rocketman 24" chutes. One is 1.1 and the other is 1.9oz Nylon. Funny enough the two on the left are also 24" chutes from GLR and (I forget the other). There is a noticeable difference in size between the two sets....
