Newby to Clusters--- Failure using Estes Electron Beam
First attempt at clustering--- 3 A10-3Ts. Used the standard estes pyrogen ignitors that come with the engines.
Pretty sure I got the wiring right. With these small engines, was easy to wrap three and three with no cross-over (did NOT use a clip whip--- was going to, but as I said, I was able to wrap three together on one end and three on the other end without shorting.)
Good continuity. Held button. No fire. Held longer. No fire. Held longer--- one engine fired. Wasn't pretty.
Does the Electron Beam launch controller carry enough juice to fire three ignitors?
As always, thanks in advance. Please be kind!
It is amazing what you can do when you don't have a choice.
