This is a blog for Rocket guys by Rocket guys. The ARC was formed to introduce and educate the public about both low and high power rocketry. We love to build rockets, both large and small. We want to expand the sport,pass on the knowhow that we have learned, and hopefully get some from others to also pay it foward. Some like to keep it to themselves. We hope to get people reinterested in space and the importance of math,and science in school.
As you can see in the video it flew well, the skirts came off as expected. I know the shroud was not to scale. But we are making a new one as I write this. The new one will be closer to scale, with the two different angles on the lower portion of the shroud.
Other progress has been with the smaller model we have added more nose weight and will fly it again soon.
On the 2 ft model we plan on a k motor total impulse weight will be the factor.
These are pictures that I have right now. Please keep looking for more.
