    After spending so so many hours it’s finally done... but I still have questions. Any ideas what the ‘h76’ in vulcanite h76 is referencing?? My first thought was a motor, checked thrust curve, Nope.

    It was a motor available 30 years ago.
    Made by Vulcan Systems.

    Yup, did my High Power Cert in 1994 on this rocket and motor at Blackrock. Motor provided by Ross of Magnum Hobbies who would drive from Ohio(?) for AERO-PAC Launches. Times have changed.

    Magnum was in Mutual, Ohio and then he moved to an old hardware store in Mechanicsburg. I used to drive over there on my lunch hour when I worked in Urbana.

    Very cool, and yes I have fond memories of both Vulcan motors and “Magnum Rockets.”
