I’ll be there Saturday and I definitely would like to check the hybrid stuff out. I also have a 4″ DD rocket with plenty of 54mm motor tube that I would be interested in trying a hybrid in if it would work.
Edward – I’ll be bringing the rocket up for sure. The booster is 48″ long, but the motor tube is only 16″. I don’t know how much support the tank requires but if we can make it fit I would love to try it. Any of those 2 big J’s or the K’s would be great. Based on the thrust curve graphs I don’t think intial thrust will be any problem, the rocket weights just over 8 lbs. without the motor. I have no problem putting a vent hole in, I assume we can do that at the launch? What size does it need to be so I can bring the proper tools?
This could really make my weekend if we can pull it off. I was hoping to fly a K550, but funds are tight, and I just can’t spend $100 on a reload, so this is a brilliant alternative. Let me know what else I need to bring, if anything, besides the rocket and a drill. I plan to be up around 9am on Saturday.
