Nice rockets. What kind of hybrid fuel did you use and what type of tooling?

Thanks Guy's !

 

The spider was cool all wavy like that, we had very strong winds blowing it around.  5" ball shell, 480g   1# motor

 

The second was a farfalle and was supposed to have a BS with the last bright flash.. VP inspired build  5" canister 520g 1 # motor

 

Third was a test of a 2 month stored motor built with 2,000 psi on the comp,  3.5 inch ball 200 g with a 3 second delay fuse.  1# motor

 

Motors are all 1# pressed at 2K on the comp a mix of BP and tame whistle with a whistle delay / bulk head. waxed tube and spindle, home rolled tubes.  I made the tooling based on rocket tool sketcher BP core burner specs.
