Motor mounts fo 29 mm motors?I have a few in my inventory. 12 inches long. No nose cone I have fits. Suggestions?
I need to get a 3D printer. Everybody in my hobbies (electronics and model rockets) uses them to make cool custom parts. If it is that useful and provides that much enjoyment, it is worth the money. I have spent similar amounts of money on much dumber expenditures.I have a similar situation so I print nosecones and fin cans on my 3D printer.
Can I just make the "sustainer" body tube longer? Of course, then it would not be a Li'l Augie, but still...I've flown my L Aug twice. Only issue with her is lack of body tube space.
Absolutely. Will be much easier to pack and more reliable.
Yep. Fins. Motor mount. No problem. Nose cone? I have no 29 mm nose. I guess I could add a custom transition to make a “payload bay” tube that then has the right size tube for a nose cone I do own. But making your own transitions is a pain.
Or just make a simple 29 mm conical nose out of paper.Yep. Fins. Motor mount. No problem. Nose cone? I have no 29 mm nose. I guess I could add a custom transition to make a “payload bay” tube that then has the right size tube for a nose cone I do own. But making your own transitions is a pain.
The outside diameter, measured with the digital caliper, is 29.93 mm. Almost 30 mm. In inches, that is 1.1783465 inches.What kind of tubes are they? What is the ID and OD? Apogee has all kinds of nosecones for 29mm tubes:
Try to keep pad weight (rocket, both motors, wadding, recovery) below max lift off weight for the booster motor. Estes C6-0 is I believe max option for 18 mm booster (although many are pleading for a C5-0 to come out soon.) To my knowledge there are no composite zero delay boosters which can stage a sustainer without electronics. You COULD chad stage a 24 mm D12 to an 18 mm sustained, you would need nose weight to bring CG back to normal. Swing test might be useful.
