Close up on the fin detail.
The booster stage and sustainer separated...
Even as a single stage it looks wicked! Great job. I really like the colors and that decal.....(drooling)....would make a great sticker for one's field box. You are truly the "Shelby" of the rocket world!
When's the first flight?
Hey Phred, what do think...stickers?
Thanks John. I think it turned out kinda cool looking
( did you get the bow&arrow + thrust AERO / Aero=arrow subtlety in the fin logo ?)
Stickers would be cool. Can Phred make glossy stickers?
I still have to get the timer bay and all the wiring installed before the first flight. I'm hoping to have it ready for the Tulsa Rocketry launch in November. If I get it done earlier, I may try a "solo" launch....I'm not sure how much altitude that sustainer will get though. This version is definately heavier than the single stage, but on the single stage version those 3 x D12's would get it up pretty high. With the extra weight, I predict about 1000 ft.
Hopefully this goes better than my gap-staged version.
1- Yes I did catch that....real neat design
2- I'm not sure but if he can, I think we should add your name on the sticker and order a boat load!
Bittersweet thread resurrection. I’m back into rocketry, but several of my old TRF friends are missing from here.
I want to get this rocket to fly, so all the old parts got dusted off and are on the bench. It’s a two stage Thrustline Aerospace Mike IX....version two. My gap staged version failed dramatically when the sustainer motor failed to light.
Plugged in a fresh battery and it started beeping to life. I think it’s ready to go.
3x24mm cluster on the booster. 1x24 on the sustainer. I’m glad I marked the CP’s on it from when I did simulations back in the day.
I’ll have to check the motor box to see what D motors I have. The sustainer will need a long delay.
I remember doing a swing test to check g switch timer ignition on an Estes igniter.
No better resurrection than a Thrustline design!!!
Were you at the Apollo 11 50th? Are you bringing these bad boys to LDRS/Airfest?
No...missed the last Tulsa launch. We went on an Alaska cruise.... it was awesome.
I’ll be at the Aug 11th Tulsa launch. Probably not at LDRS, but will make the High Frontier launch in Pawhuska on Sept 28th.
