I'm likin' any team willing to try a Delta........best O' luck Kev
Geez, did you have to put the pic of Tom's bare arse on there? I was looking for a rusty spoon to gouge my eyes out with after I saw that! I think I'm going to be scarred for life!
Keep an eye on the electronics page; should have some really cool tidbits to add there, soon, once I get confirmation on what's coming....Originally posted by firemanup
Try a fork Joe it works better.... heh
Project information looks great Kevin..... it's doubtful but i'm not giving up hope yet on being able to come down and see it go up. we'll see...
Nice job on the site too
VERY carefully...Originally posted by Ray Dunakin
BTW, how do you plan to separate the boosters?
So tell 'em to just stay down there.... 8-}Originally posted by Blue_Ninja_150
Aw MAN, we're going down that way-a week before the launch. Parents don't want to drive 200 miles down there, then 200 back, then 200 there, then 200 back twice in a week. Maybe I can do some convincing. Project looks awesome!
Thanks; we have indeed checked out any site we can find with info on boosters.

Where is the video those stills were grabbed from? We wanna see!
From the video we have, the P motor ignited between 1.56 and 1.6 seconds after the Ls ignited. This, along with wind, and less than optimal stability probably caused the arching.Originally posted by troj
As the P tailed off on thrust, the rocket started to dip down, so the altimeters did their thing and popped the mains. The pilot chute for the lower main pulled the recovery harness back into the still-burning motor, compromising its integrity, which is why we stripped the chute. The parachute itself is in perfect condition, and other than some Kansas dust, looks like it has never been used.
We'll have more flight photos and video available in time...

Man, that's a beautiful rocket. What a shame it got messed up.
