Approximately how much longer is an Estes E motor than an Estes D?
Measure where your rocket's CG is, with a "D" installed. Then, with an "E" installed and hanging out the back, add nose weight to bring the CG back to where it was.Originally posted by nomopbo
Thanks for the reply. I haven't purchased any E engines yet and was wondering how far they would hang out the back of the rockets I have. LOL An inch is probably pushing it.
now, *that* would be slick. An E9 with quad A10 should provide enough initial boost to get her moving. I'll have to see if I still have one around and modify it for that...Originally posted by Prowler901
Yeah Jim. How about your 5 motor cluster in the Phoenix. Ballanced out with the appropriate nose weight, of course.
I have to agree with Jim on this, I just don't understand why some folks seem so reluctant to offer up a post on this forum. We don't laugh at you (at least, not at very many-----OK, if you have a kinky name like 'ZippyOGiveHead' or something-----or maybe do something REALLY stupid like using the Estes ejection wadding for 'some other purpose' when you run out of TP) and everyone I have seen on TRF likes to try to help anyone with a question. So what gives?Originally posted by jflis
LORDY, what do we have to do so that folks don't wait *forever* before asking their questions in here????
