I have a 4 inch tube, ID of approx 3/4 inch. I have placed a star which is slightly under the 3/4 inch size.
I put approx 2 grams of Lift powder in the tube and the star gets some height but then lands on the ground still burning.
I can then place 4 grams of lift powder in the tube, same size star and it still hits the ground and is still burning,
1/2 inch stars don't have this problem, obviously the 1/2 inch stars are not burning for as long. They don't need as much height.
As an example you can purchase a star gun like this one here https://www.woodysro...Star_Gun.html#/
Is the ID of a tube directly related to the length of the tube for the star to get enough height?
I do not believe its my lift as on the ground when it ignites it goes up very fast and no residue. I have Home Made Pine charcoal in my BP. Should I be using Horticultural Charcoal instead for my Lift?
I think I am going to try the attached image ID tube and length, star weight and Lift powder weight to see what happens( Maybe not 300 of them though ), unless someone can suggest to me an alternative to get my bigger stars in the air higher?
