    My First DD Launch!

    I just launched my Hi-Flyer(I know I misspelled it) XXL earlier today on an F-52T-5. Not perfect but this is just a test for future rockets.

    Dual Deploy Electronics

    Hello, just wanted to get a couple tips and tricks before my first dual deploy launch. Is there any tricks veterans use to ensure successful dual deploy launches? Specifically, my biggest concern is wires disconnecting from my EasyMini during flight. Thanks. Also, on an unrelated note, how hard...

    HED on a 7.5" Loc V2?

    I am looking to drag the largest box off of my build pile, finally. I am wondering if it is possible to do HED with the RNWS in place? Otherwise, is there a better or different option for dual deploy on this airframe?

    Back in 2022 Estes had a Black Friday sale and I picked up the Estes Star Orbiter (https://estesrockets.com/products/star-orbiter) for pretty cheap and it came with an adapter and some engines. After reading Leo's terrific thread...

    Removing ejection charge from CTI K630 to enable use in Dual Deploy

    I would like to make a Dual Deployment flight but it looks like a lower cloud ceiling than the CTI L850 will allow for. Is there a special technique to allow removal of the ejection charge from a CTI 630 so that I may test my Dual Deployment configuration? Thanks.

    Estes Vapor For Dual-Deploy

    Interested in hearing from anyone who might have constructed an Estes Vapor #7294 for dual-deploy recovery. I have an eye towards building one to allow for more practice with dual deploy at our club's field, which is currently low and mid-power only. I know I'll need to construct an AV bay, and...

    29mm Minimum Diameter Dual Deploy Go Devil

    At some point, I had picked up a Composite Rocketry 29mm Go Devil and it had been sitting in the build pile for a while. (As a side note, I am really confused about the relationship between Rocketry Warehouse, Composite Warehouse and Madcow. Probably a discussion for a different thread.) We...

    GPS Drift, Rocket Landing Predictor and visualizer Spreadsheet

    Out of a desire to understand a little more where my rockets could potentially land leading up to the launch, and the morning of launch. As well as predicting where anomalous flights may go(main at apogee failures anyone?) Especially after having treed a couple rockets in my close flying circle...

    Large/Heavy Rocket Recovery.

    I have searched the recovery forum for a while and have found a few answers but I still have some questions for people with experience. - Cable cutter or tender descender for ~10 lb rocket ? I will be building a LOC Warlock 54mm with a 6 ft main chute and I want to have some way of a low main...

    Dual deploy question

    I’m trying to get into dual deploy. I’ve got a LOC Athena that I want to make dual deploy. Ideally I’d like to keep the 3 inch avionics bay removable so that I can put it on a different rocket in the future if I like. My question is: what’s the best way to go about doing this? I know you use...

    Low power dual deploy

    I know it's been done before. I also know it's not ideal due to lack of body tube thickness. That said, is there a descent kit or at least one that is more recommendable than the others for low power dual deploy? Looking to use C or D. Not using JLCR. I only wanna use black powder. I...

    Advice needed on LOC Deployer ground testing

    I built a LOC Deployer (3" all-inclusive dual deploy kit) as a test vehicle for the EggTimer Quantum that I soldered, the MJG e-matches I dipped, and the charge wells I designed and printed in PETG. My real goal is full dual deployment on the LOC 5.5" Patriot I built as my NAR Level 2, but I...

    Ebay with Metal Bulk Plates - Wildman

    I received an electronics bay from Wildman Rocketry. It is a very basic kit, 1 32mm fiberglass coupler and two bulk plates (See Pictures). I have never worked with metal bulk plates before. I was wondering if I could get some ideas on how to pass the electrical signal from my altimeter inside...

    Dual Deployment Without Ejections

    Hello! The other day I posted on here about an issue with my Hyperloc835. This issue has been fixed, thanks everyone that helped (and thank you, Loc Precision). I now have another question. I'm considering changing how my dual deployment is done. The instructions call for the drogue chute to go...

    Pratt Ejection Canisters

    Have there been a lot of positive experiences with the Pratt Ejection Canisters? From reading online, they are reusable and used to trigger ejection charges without requiring or consuming a separate electric match (sounds like you pack them full of black powder, and they have a wire that gets...
