Multiple rocket-gazms - Pro 29 Vmax motors!



I keep trying to stop using so many exclamation points while blogging, but it is just very hard to do with news like this!!!1 At under .5 sec burn time, these are fast even for Vmax motors. (Granted that is probably associated with the lower total impulse class, smaller motors tend to be faster burning. But a G motor with 65 lbs thrust? That is huge, and it is a bit more accessible than the Warp - 9 motors which are 38mm and don't offer pyrotechnic ejection from what I have seen.)

New 29mm lineup

(MUST REINFORCE 38 - 29MM ADAPTER... MUST BRING PAPER BAG FULL OF UNMARKED BILLS TO NEXT LAUNCH...)*

These will be good for those bigger models when you have a smaller field. I like the AMW G185 for my medium sized 38mm rockets.

I wonder how one could combine a bunch of these motors to try and get the top mach number possible below say M impulse... Is Mach 4 possible in a 3 stage rocket?

Probably these 29mm motors are just a bit too weak for being used in a 3 stage rocket, but the 38mm motors would make a nice upper stage. And staging would have to be really fast to prevent drag loss.
