There is something special about a well spiked cylinder shell that’s lifted by a rocket, very nice indeed Paul.

Very nice! Looked like the rocket didn't get great height though. Did you design it like that? How much delay did you use? It looked like 2 seconds from ignition to burst. I like about 4 seconds on a 4oz  and longer on 1lb. Great header though!

Thanks Vic, i absolutely agree :) .

 

 

Thanks Maxman , the video is very decieving , the delay was 3 seconds , it was a great spread from that shell and kind of makes it look quite low.

if i was using long hang time stars or inserts i would of given more delay and a stronger fuel, this rocket motor was fueled with 65 30 10 and just screened a couple of times, it works out nice for the short burn time of the stars used.

Thanks , the break was home cooked kilmarnock willow BP, milled for around 6 hours and 5 to 1 on Hulls , i also had a small amount of Nitrate slow flash that was dusted on the strobes for a prime, it worked out 2g , with or without the slow flash it makes no difference as that BP is fast.

It would be prudent not to advertise making anything at the moment. When we all have the relevant paper work it will be a different matter.

It’s a 100grm rule Vic the legislation would just keep us slightly outside the radar? Technically I could through a 2inch shell up as of now?

 

Yes you could argue the point at crown court when you get there, but how many of us want to go that far.
