Hi guys,

here is my attempt of tom's rocket. I'm quite happy with it. The delay could be a bit longer. And the break a little harder.

Looked fine to me. Nice job.  You might lose symmetry with a harder break.

Also specs: Motor ID/spindle specs/fuel/How much Win39J delay.
Stars compo/large stars diam (18mm?).
Pics.
Breaking charge/carrier.
Spiking specs.
Everything I may have missed :)

Now, let me tell you - IF I saw the rocket flight alone without the prefire movie I would have sworn it was a TR rocket.
In fact, I believe somehow you simply stuck a TR break to your real rocket ;)


Now, the delay *coul* have been a bit longer but not much (maybe another extra second). I personally prefer to have the shell break before the rocket starts to arch (at apogee) so it was good for me as it was.
The break was good. The simetry was PERFECT so no need to have it stronger then that. It was probably the loundness you are looking for? It sounded just like TR's. (he only uses BP for breaking IIRC).

I cannot see any fault in your rocket display. A 10 out of 10 rocket really.
The only fault IMO is you use commercial QM but that's more of a personal taste.

Good job ! For the time being you are here what Gman is on PF. Actually more.

The only difference I could tell is the spiking.  Tom has a peculiar offset spiking pattern/style.  Nice work. 


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

This rocket was amaizing. If you could share more about this shell and stars I would really apreciate it. The blue stars were very deep, can you shere the formula?

 

It sounded just like TR's. (he only uses BP for breaking IIRC).

I watched the whole movie about TR rockets (uploaded by displayFireworks), where Tom stated that he uses from 0-6g of FP and straight Goex in shells, because he's shells have quite small canulle.

thank you guys. 
 
Tom used for this heading 4FA and 2g Flash (7/3).( i did a bit different ) Pictures of the construction of the shell I have not done, sorry. The next time I'll remember that.
 
@ Mumbles
Yes I know the method of tom as he spiked his shells. 
But I can not do with my because I spike my shells after I stuck them on the motor....
And thank you for the kind words  :)

Can you at least let us know what star formulas and the star diam. you used?

Hmmm... interesting approach - spiking the shell with the engine attached.
