So after a 15 year sit-out (I certified 10 days before 9/11) I'm back in. Going to recertify with my old corporal since it flew great back then. Going with an H180 for a nice easy flight. My altimeter has failed all tests, and a replacement will not make it here before Saturday's attempt. Sooo, just going with simple motor ejection. But Rocksim give the following data:
- Time to burnout: 1.401 Sec.
- Time to apogee: 7.396 Sec.
- Optimal ejection delay: 5.995 Sec.
- Shouldn't I actually need a 7.396 second delay since it burns at ignition? I always just used anecdotal (somone else's flight) to figure it if I wasn't using my altimeter.
