I would HIGHLY recommend the Twiggy igniters made by Quickburst. They're $10/10 pack, which makes them cheaper than the Daveyfire ones. My Rocketry Club (at my school) launched a rocket flying on 2x G64s the other day, it the motors lit perfectly!Originally posted by iamthemik
what kinds of igniters should i use on two aerotech G's. i want something reliable and am willing to spend a little extra for something that wont fail me. i heard something about daveyfire but i think theres more to them.
We were expecting about 1300', but it didn't go near that high because of the high winds. When I started the Rocketry Club at my school, all I did was write a proposal for the dean of students, and found a teacher sponsor for the club.Originally posted by cjl
I really need to convince my science teacher to start a rocketry club at our school. That is awesome. Great launch. What altitude were you expecting on that flight?
If you're looking for something big, I would recommend a scratch built rocket. The one we launched at Veteran's Day cost no more than $30 (we made the rings and fins, the most expensive part was the $17 nose cone, and the tubes were about $5 each from Red Arrow Hobbies) and it was 3.9" wide, and 7 feet tall! It was DEFINETLEY a fun build!Originally posted by cjl
I definitely think I'll do theat. Maybe we can get it together in time for an end-of-the-year launch. We could start with some estes stuff and work up to something big (PML, Aerotch, LOC, something like that).
