casting delay elements
Okay-Stealth6 started this train of thought for me. Does anything specifically prohibit me from casting my own delay slug for a production motor? The reason I ask is I have some extra smoke comp (un mixed) I didn't use from a video SFX project they just gave me to get rid of and S6 got me to thinking. It's not propellant, but with my new element, would it be considered an altered motor? We DO drill our delays, right? What If I could duplicate the factory delay formulae but add a couple more seconds to get a 16-18 sec delay in the same geometry? I like to fly the long burns and the delay is typically way too short for motor deploy backup or primary use. I understand about being under pressure and flame front propagation and chamber pressures and propellant type (aerotech anyways). The grain itself is not my problem-it's the legal issue of modified motors. Smart people live here-is this a stupid question??

97% of the time, I'm right-the other 5% doesn't bother me.
There comes a point in your life that looks just like all the other points you didn't notice either.
If I had a nickel for every dollar I spent on rockets, I'd have more rockets.
You may have had more fun in your life than me, but the chaos was undeniable.
