Current LPR designs in the pipe...

Postby snrkl » Thu Aug 31, 2017 7:54 pm

Working on a rebuild of my BT60 two stage Blu Fyr:

Booster remake and repairing a popped sustainer fin.. Hoping to have it ready by next weekend for the QRS launch:

Working on a Birthday candle rocket - we have a birthday girl next launch.. Hoping to bring it down on a 6m rainbow streamer but I am thinking it might be a little heavy... Maybe if I can figure out how to get TWO 6m rainbow streamers out of it without horrible tangles...

Also starting to think about a scratch built version of a MIRV.. BT60 booster on a d12- gap staging to 4 separate 24mm sustainers with18mm BP motors:
Sustainers would be dual fin, and use oblique nose cones and come down on streamers -

Latest iteration on the MIRV concept...

The design would call for two hand made 4:1 shroud transitions - one inside for the D12-A83 gap staging, the other for the top of the booster manifold where it meets the sustainers...
