- Reaction score
I'd like to build a scale flying Jayhawk based on a BT-80 main tube. I'd like to power it with an unusual cluster, a D-12+C-6. From looking at the thrust/impulse diagrams from Estes it appears that the C motor is approxiamately one/half as powerful as the D motor in terms of both thrust and impulse. So, what I propose is to mount the motors such that the C nozzle is twice the distance from the vertical C.G. as the D nozzle. I think that this will apply roughly equal vectors to the rocket. Does anyone have any experience with this type of cluster or have an opinion on it's feasibility?
