hey guys, I am thinking of flying my 5.5" V2 on a J350. I am wondering how high it will go, because I dont want to lose such a great rocket. I think it weighs 8lbs alone, but I added an altimeter, and chute compartments in the nosecone. I tried to sim it on rocksim and it came out to 3500 feet which I dont think is right. I saw another guys website, and he got a L2 with a J350 in a V2 and he didnt add extra weight like I did and his went to 2500 feet. Another reason I know this cant be right is Rocsim put the CG at the top of the body tube which definantly isnt right.

Thanks alot.

Ryan...
My 4" V2 shows the cp directly in front of the top of the fins. I'm sure it varies by the actual size of the fins being used.

I would define the CG manually. As for altitude, I don't know. 3500' seems a bit high for 8 lbs.

You could give it to my dad for his L2....;) But he wants a J420. Never mind. I could use one in my Forte.....:D Nahhh.... I dont want to shred it or lose it....:eek:

I cant wait to see your flight! I think I will try to get it on video... Along with Dougs magnum. My digital camera can do 30 second videos... More if I get a better picture card:cool:

Half of me thinks your nuts flying Js at Amesbury, but the other half is saying "thisll be too cool.....":D :cool:


This will be a launch to remember.....:D

Doug is going first anyway, that way I have his rocket to test out wind conditions etc. If he gets his back then I just do whatever he did

CompuRoc shows your V-2 doing 1864' on the new (Ellis Mtn.) AT J 350 grains, and 1944' on the old AT grains.

Hey JETRA!!!
Cool V2 flight pic!
What is the UFO in the upper right hand corner of the pic?
It looks like an F16 evading a missle attack!!!

The PE V2 is 4" in diameter, mine is larger and probably more heavy, I hope it doesnt go that high
