Folks

To re-boot this thread, I will post a few pics of my work horse hybrid that I have been using for the last couple of years. It is a much modified PML 2.1" Gamma - a so-called hybrid-ready model. It stands at about 2.2m. The black tube beside it is the Contrail 38mm/36" motor case.

The Gamma was originally a much shorter single deploy configuration. However, it has now grown a bit and is configured as a dual deploy with full redundancy. The avbay houses two PerfectFlite StratologgerCFs. The nosecone has a MAC Performance Rocketry nosecone bay with an Eggtimer Mini GPS inside.

My GSE includes a BOC size DE N2O tank and Pratt gauge and solenoid valve manifold. I have a selection of fill tubes for the 29mm Rattworks I90 and 38mm and 54 mm Contrail motors I currently have.

The launch controller is a fairly straight forward home-build.

Of course, there are the obligatory safety items!

Hey Voyager... thank you.
I find your work very impressive... and now that Aus has funding for a space agency you’re pretty much unlimited for trial and error. I expect to see something like this from you in the near future. See you later this year in Kelpie land.

While we're posting launch videos, here is Troy's (as in @rocket_troy) hybrid flight from this month's Serpentine launch.

Very nice HH! Thank you.
What is the rocket? Motor? 38mm or 54mm?
What size N2O cylinders? Is that a DE in the insulation blanket?
I assume that the RF module is part of your wireless launch system?
