So just hold-down clamp of sorts?I dont want data acquisition just a safe and stable test stand.
Yes that is what i am looking to do.I take it that 'fires properly' is the only data you're looking for? No max thrust, or average, or burn time?
I think the other question that will help people answer sensibly is 'about what thrust'? If it was an 18mm, I'd probably use a ring stand and a clamp. A K1000 calls for something else.
Edit - wait, you said LPR. Never mind.
I've only seen it done to E9s to test if the pack is CATO prone, but I'm fairly certain that any Estes black powder motor would be fine in it. Mud/clay has some surprising stickiness. If an E9 won't go anywhere, I can't imagine a C6 being a problem.Is that safe?
Ok thanks i won't try it.Dirt is denser than snow, has a much higher melting point, packs together tighter, and has higher friction, and won't potentially soak or extinguish the test subject prior to firing.. I know we have a lot of it (snow) right now, but I'd stick with dirt..
