Yes - But even going up to C6 in simulation will not work. Again it's a heavy shipping tube.
Maybe with a 24mm motor.. ;)
I would add a little chamfer or do it in 2 parts like I did.
Flew a not so great trial. Making a rocket out of a heavy shipping tube... Don't judge me... [emoji1787]
Flew a cheap Estes Amazon at...
The only one I had on hand B6-4
I was already aware of the weigh and everything so it was a fun try...
I'll get you the final weight but.. Too heavy...
Ok I flew it.. If enough people want to see I'll share the video
Thanks - I'll try to do that this weekend but we had crazy winds the last two days.
I've started modelling on a standard BT-60 tube and cardboard...
Just a coat of primer [ATTACH]
The last post was done on my phone and it ... didn't work right.. sorry
The new motor mount with some skeleton shape as suggested by @Ablative:...
It's been moved now :)
I understand all that - This is not an attempt to build a powerful rocket but to build one using the Staples tube.
Unfortunately it's hard here to...
Here is a LIGHT version of the motor mount and some data. (OpenRocket V0.3 uploaded)
I've quickly designed and guess the weigh in cad of a D12 and it's way better.. Might go that route
What about lowering the CP with more fin surface?
I can go bigger for the engine (mount) and ditch the clip fin approach as well.
I'll model it... [emoji57]
I've weighted and overwritten them. (both in the second post still)
Some like the bulkhead are have no weight as i put everthing in the motor tube...
I've but cardboard for the motor mount but over estimated the dimensions (since I can't select abs) and 3D prints are not 100% filled with...
Added OpenRocket files in second post
I'll properly weigh soon and might put it in openrocket.
I added some circles to encase the retainer and will have to cut grooves in the fins......
