Randy,

The floating injector hybrids are quite neat. My experience is with the RATT I80, but I will expand that knowledge now with the Sky Ripper system. I will have to build a new rocket to fit the 36" long J motor...darn

Nice little end around, eh? 8<) ........and I'm willing to overlook his wmv fettish cuz he's done such a great job with his motors.........but don't think I won't remind him of the misery it puts me through. Keep flyin' it straight Todd! 8<) #### n3tjm ##### Papa Elf He should put them in mpg. DOn't loose much quality... runs better then Mov... and you can run them on any mutimedia OS, including Palm Pilots . #### Chuck Rudy ##### Well-Known Member Originally posted by n3tjm He should put them in mpg. DOn't loose much quality... runs better then Mov... and you can run them on any mutimedia OS, including Palm Pilots . As much as I beat him up about it, at least it works. There was a time wmv wouldn't work even if I bribed it, which is where the my attitude began. So I do get a chance to see his stuff even if I have to jump on one leg for a while and push the mouse with my big toe. Mpeg encoders cost$, and I don't blame anyone who doesn't feel they have to shell out cash to make the movies available in Mpeg.

Anyway. back to the SRS Hybrids.........the 54s, anything new with the grains?

While my motors are in route, I thought I would take care other items that I will need to do before I can fly my new motors.

Our club is lucky enough to have it's own HyperTEK GSE. In order for to fly using this GSE, I will need to adapt the 3/16th inch line to the N2O line on the GSE. This is what I purchased from a local supply house:

1/4 AN maleto ANfemale-->NPT male to 1/8 bushing-->3/16th inch compression fitting.

In my case, the 1/8 bushing was needed as the NPT male version was not available. I ordered 2 of the above set-ups, and 20 extra furrels for the compression fitting for a grand total of $4.97... Here is what you will need to adapt should you have a HyperTEK GSE to hook to: 1/4 AN male to NPT female-->NPT male to 3/16th inch compression. I also ordered some DOW Corning Krytox from McMaster-Carr for about$27 as well.

I will get some pics up for anyone interested in my adapters...

Now bring on the motors

Wow!

The motors are here!! From Common Wealth to my door in 2 days, and at discounted prices to boot.

These motors are quality. (Period!) I will not start a review here, but...wow!

I have changed my mind regarding the clone of the PML ION, as a 2.5" rocket is more my game, Considering I have a "J" motor the size of a yardstick that is.

a little less than 3 weeks to go before I can burn one :-\

Pictures please! I'm *very* interested in the soon-to-be-released 29/76 G casing & my club has HyperTek GSE. Being a hybrid newbie, I have no idea what I need to get/do to make it compatible with the SRS motors. But I am willing to learn

Thanks.

since 76cc is approx 2.6 oz...I have started looking for smaller than normal NOX ..I don't particulary relish the idea of putting out $145-185 for 10lb or 20lb Nox supply tanks. Assuming$7 per ln for NOX that would be $70 to$140 to fill it all up.....and if you multiply 10lb x 16 = 160 oz/2.6 oz that comes out to 61 flights and if you divide $70 by 61 it comes out to$1.15 per flight for just NOX so \$9 total flights on the G are entirely possible.

I wonder if industrial NOX is any cheaper than medical NOX? anybody know?

12 and 20 oz bottles..... 4-7 flights

or are any of these cost effective:

maybe a 1/2/5 lb bottle?
