and my view 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50hVIAGEkc8  me swearing was me thinking that all 3 motors had not lit but then i looked down and realised how bloody big the tail was

id appreciate comments but i still have a lot of work to do i know shorten the whistle delays and put heavier shells on them all haha 3lb motors are a bit of overkill for 4" ball shells {multibreaks here i come haha}

 

but otherwise im pretty chuffed with my first big build 

 

hope you all enjoy as much as i did lighting them 


and on the seventh day, god was unhappy with the break on his finale shell, and decided to roll stars all day.

Awesome work mate, those motors lifted those shelss like there was nothing on them. Did you weigh those 4 inches to know what weight they were? Also, did you use royal blue formula again?

Wow, impressive workhorse motors! I noticed in one of the vids where some of the stars started off purple and turned blue. I thought it was the camera adjusting itself but looked great. Can you pm the formula for royal blue? Had a look once before and failed to find any details...
Also, what are the details of the 3lb'rs. Screen mixed or milled powder? Some looked like they had plenty of Ti in them and some with whistle mix above the spindle?

Nice rockets lee! Cant wait for the multibreaks :)  Especially using your cluster motor method, you could probably lift some heavy stuff.

 

The buzzbombs were pretty awesome too, not something you see very often.

 

How are you controlling the delay on your motors?
