Lightbulb New Design: Ion Explorer 13mm

Yep, Craig seems to be on a roll here. Maybe I should just stay out of the way before I get runned over . Keep them coming Craig!

Here is a design that I have downscaled from it's original version to a ST-5 main BT just so I could use the Semroc BC-523 for a nose cone. It has been built and flown on an 1/2 A3T-2 to an altitude of around 90 feet in the front yard. I packed the recovery wadding too tight and the streamer failed to fully deploy resulting in a busted off fin at ground inpact. Easily and quickly fixed. My plan in the future for this one is back its original size while still keeping the look of the BC-523 which will be upscaled as well.

Ion Explorer ST-5 13mm
Launch guide length: 36.0000 In

MOTOR.................MAX. ALTITUDE...........DEP. VELOCITY
1/2A3T-2 .............145.64370 Ft.............17.7475 ft/s
A10T-3................302.26706 Ft.............1.2592 ft/s

Thanks Again and Enjoy, JP.
