    Just for the record, mine have front ignition as well...

    This is spike, a 2 stage m to m rocket. Max velocity was measured at mach 1.78


    and
    and as yet unnamed single stage rocket that will be powered be a 1xM, 4xK cluster. Still a little beat up and dirty from its maden flight last fall.

    OK, I used to play w/model rockets a little as a kid, but I think this takes thing to whole new level!!!

    How do you ever recover one of those things. They have to go out of sight when launched!!

    Bill,

    The worst part is that he has to get FAA clearance to launch them ! no kidding .

    Also did you know that Abinok just got a new ( to him ) car . Well you should as that is the one he is shamelessly displaying along withn those Estes on steroids [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Are you sure that's not a matchbox and some fancy artwork on some thimbuls??? One can work majic w/a camera. If you don't believe me, just look @ Lerch in some of our photos. He's really alot uglier in person [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

    Ballistic 64 ,

    Your visionary decision to get on this bandwagon before you can't afford a ticket is praiseworthy , however due to the tremendous response the price has been increased to $64000.00 Not a problem I'm sure for a man of your means , so I have put you down for the very first one I can get to shoot wihout blowing up the action . ( more to come on that front Buffalobob )

    Some have asked about the powder so this pic is to show the incredible design of this bullet ( fsd rbbt icd) and what pioneering efforts have produced in the way of a suitable propellant, (that is the powder to the right of the bullet )


    At this point I can not divulge any further info as it may compromise a major deal in the making . I'm sure you will all understand .

    I will post further info as it comes to me ,err I mean as it is ok to do so .

    Jim B.

    ABINOK needs to put that bottom rocket on the Neco. It looks to have more than 0.003 runout.

    I would also recommend that he strap ole Spike there to the top of his car because I bet if you look under the hood it is short a couple of cylinders and could use some extra juice.
