Pledges Shipped & Rocket Firings

Posted by STAR Systems (Creator)

Hi Everyone,

First off, I'd like to let you know that the stickers and T-Shirts for the $10, $25, $75, and $150 tier awards are shipped and on their way! You should all be receiving them shortly (if you haven't already). Thank you for your patience; if there are any issues with your shipment please don't hesitate to contact me.

Motor Firings

We're making great progress in our motor development too! Here's one we just did last week (should be attached below). This was an 8 second motor burn using our 2" motor. What's great about this particular firing was the use our new automation system. Now that the foundation is in place and properly coded, we will begin expanding our testing platform to facilitate larger motor firings. After our meeting this upcoming Sunday, I will be putting out a special Backer Only update where I discuss the automation in more detail and show off some pictures and data from it.
