Really nice ! I'm happy to see that your project is going well, congratulations.

Nice and smooth!! Was it just me seeing things, or did you try to throttle the engine a little about halfway through? I thought I saw something about 1:20 in the video like a throttle up. Was that just a tank pressurization event or something?

In any case, congrats on the UNeventful firing!! hope that it helps clear up those chamber failure problems!

Paul Breed said...

We did do some throttle tests,
We did not throttle much, but we
throttled to the point that the chamber presure was just starting to change. We will do a deeper throttle test next run.

Congrats on a great firing.

This is a long stable burn. Very impressive.

Just a post to the Scout troop:
I hope you guys had fun out at FAR.
I enjoyed doing the show and tell.
Its nice to see kids with an interest in building things and asking good questions. You guys seemed to have an endless stream of Small rockets flying.
