Hello!
Great having you here. Unfortunately, we're not allowed to talk about homemade (EX) motors in the open forum due to ITAR regulations. In order to join the research forum, you must be a US citizen with L1 certification.

Might I suggest you look at Richard Nakka's website? He has some good information.

Welcome!
Matt

Isn't it L2?

Here's what it says:
Heck, I attended a private mixing class in February 06 and came home with two K and one 54mm L motors. Was only an L1 at the time and the local group needed bodies to ante up the $200.00 fee for the class, materials, and 54mm Loki motor
casing. Best fun I had in a weekend by far. I did the L2 shortly thereafter so was technically "legal" to fly.

Back then a launch that was Research was "Research". Just previously it was "Research-only" and when I came on one could fly research and certified motors at a research launch. One had to have an L2 certification to fly at a Research launch no matter
what! Really jerked my chain that an L1 couldn't fly a certified load at a research launch and rushed my L2 as a result. Fortunately, the TRA rules were liberalized in a couple of years thereafter so fliers of all levels could fly at a Research launch.
L1 with a certified motor? No problem now.
