Large Motor Delivery
We received a special delivery of our 10" Rocket Motor this past weekend. I want to provide a special mention to our friend and Kickstarter supporter, Tony Needham. He and his friends helped us source the material, fabricate the motor and he personally delivered it to our shop. With help from people like Tony, I am confident we are going to succeed in our long term endeavor!
Our large rocket motor is about 10" is diameter, 8 feet long, and has the capability to put out over 5,000lbs of thrust! The casing is a single piece of seamless stainless steel. The flanges are very beefy; too heavy for flight testing, but great for ground testing. They will help both secure the test stand to the motor and provide an ideal location for our load cell, which will calculate our thrust.
