I had mentioned this project in another thread. Several expressed interest in the documentation of this project so I thought it best to create a thread. Please bear with me as this the first time I have attempted to create a thread. This project is for a build challenge hosted by my club. The challenge is to successfully design, build, fly and recover a gap staged rocket. I have been interested in gap staging since the first time I read G Harry Stine's book as a kid. I remember the book almost challenging me to build the longest gap staged rocket possible. I am hoping to test the limits of the gap stage by building the Double Mean Machine. The Double Mean Machine is just as it sounds, two Mean Machines staged. One as the booster, the other as the sustainer. The planned launch date for this will be mid September. I will post as the build progresses.
