We’ll see. If someone flies skyripper at Mayhem, I may look on and see what the pad prep involves. I have a rocket that’ll take skyrippers, so if it isn’t too much of a hassle, I would definitely look into it.
Edward – Maybe you could do some sort of close -up demo/tutorial for those of us who don’t know much about hybrids. If it isn’t a major hassle, I would definitely look into it. I simply don’t know much about it and all you read about is that they are a hassle. I would be very interested in tagging along to watch what is required to prep and make a flight. And when I say demo I’m not refering to the flight, I’ve seen those, I mean the process of prepping and initiating the launch. All the hybrid flights I’ve seen involved a “thumbs up” from some guy sprinting frantically away from the launch pad. 😕
The motors are here – and people are welcome to fly them. Reloads are $25 each. On another note does anyone know the size of the tube from the N2O soleniod to the motor. What size pipe thread is it. I’m going to need to get one to adapt to the SRS motors.
I think the club has the fittings for several of the standard tube sizes. I know they have 1/8, 3/16 and 1/4, and there are probaby others. There is a big yellow box of hardware with a slew of different fittings, adapters and other stuff.
Unfortunately I am not good with thread sizes, so I really cant tell you exactly what to get. On the good side with all the hardware that the club has there is a good chance that whatever you get you be able to make it work.
