Aero forces on the fins, shock cord loads, and landing forces tend to be significantly greater than the forces applied by motors themselves. Build...
Wire EDM will probably be your friend on that interstage coupler.
I have never seen the front of a CTI case fail. The plastic, yes, but never the flange. Interesting.
I know that feeling; I have a lathe, and now I must find a mill.
But I must find the space for the mill; the lathe takes up all the extra space I...
OpenRocket has predicted coning in a rocket that coned in real life but it was hard to notice in the plots; it only showed a lower than expected...
What wins out: the greater mass fraction and total impulse and burn duration of the CTI, or the lower total mass of the Loki? I'd bet on the CTI...
Why two on the back and only one on the front? Does the temperature difference matter more than the pressure difference?
I think that SpaceX might be moving more towards reusability in the sense of commercial airliners than Space Shuttle style.
With the move toward...
I would use morepins than just six. Maybe twelve? The same size would be fine. I don't know if staggering would help in filament wound tubing.
Square fin edges?
I meant a cluster, as that was the topic at hand. One separate Vmax in the center that burns out shortly above the pad, and then it would be...
How about Mellows on the side with a tiny Vmax in the middle to get it off the pad?
Not safe to use again.
CTI will replace it for free (and probably give you a new reload too).
So it's kinda like an Aerotech N4800? (Cylindrical core up front, 4 fins for the last 1/3)
Also, double-triple-quadruple check your stability.
Would it be possible to have a pink motor with a clean shutdown like the 38mm version?
What? Why glass, then peel ply, then more glass, and then perforated film? I must be missing something there.
'Teflon peel ply' as in...
For me, Openrocket is launched by a file in my home directory containing
java -jar OpenRocket[version].jar
No icons necessary.
Really. A year?
Usually most people either stick around forever or give up immediately.
I've used Linux since 2006 with no issues.
IIRC Bdale from Altus Metrum is a Debian developer.
It may weathercock in windy conditions. Otherwise I'd be fine with it.
Separate names with a comma.
