Balls 20 - 2011



I think this is the first time I have posted this video. Better late than never! It includes footage of the the 4 Carb Yen, a N5800 - N1100 two stage flight to over 100,000 feet, conducted by Jim Jarvis. This flight, with a slow upper stage and significant staging delay, is the closest test yet of the proposed N5800 to N5800 space attempt that has been discussed here and at The Rocketry Planet previously. The delay was around 10 seconds, with an upper stage burn time of around 10 seconds as well. Now delays of significantly longer, 20 to 30 seconds, were proposed in the space shot. It also remains to be seen how much better an N5800 will do as the upper stage. You can see this rocket fly at 1:00.

You can also see a massive two stage flight by Robert Dehate and the Derek Deville Q flight to about 120,000 feet.
