Today, I'll share my experience with this composition

this composition is based to flash powder and green flare mix

i mixed 10 gramms of fp and 10 grammes of green composition ( with the wrapped method)

i bind with alcool and press with my HANDS (my weight is approx 65kg)


after 5 days of dry, i've make a parachute rocket


Posted Image


the first brown tube is the rocket motor (14mm)

the half tube (white) is the flare casing

and the big brown tube is the parachute casing



for the fp,i use 325 mesh AL

in this video, the flare was bright

but the rocket fail....

It looks like the flare and parachute were far too heavy for the rocket.
Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.
