The streamer is made of 5’ strips sewed end to end for a total length of 25’.That's a BIG streamer!
Or is it 5'? Is this a different streamer? I've heard that BAMA Chutes has nice stuff, that should be great for visibility. I have ZERO room for anything else besides shock cord, my deployment charges, and maybe a bit of dog barf. But I'm leaving room for a 4 grain case, so that is what makes it tight.
Yeah, I think that they're slightly different sizes. I think that my bulkhead with threaded nut will work, the only downside is that it is in a fixed position, so I can't move it around, or use motor ejection as a fall back. But that's alright, I'm building this rocket for one specific flight.
I plan to roll it up and it should just fit into the BT60 tube.
As to the placement of your bulkhead, you’ve probably already figured this out, thread the screw into the closure and insert the motor into the body tube. Then measure the distance from the front of the tube to the bulkhead. That will give the exact location for mounting the bulkhead so you maximize you shockcord space.
Look at us...breaking Mach and one mile high with a paper rocket. We ain’t all there, are we? LOL!
