Floating Head Piston Questions
Would it be safe and correct to say that the height that a traditional floating head will fly once it leaves the piston rod, with the rocket attached, would be determined by the engine used?
If this is so, what kind of heights are we looking at ? 5ft ? 10ft? More?
I'm specifically talking about 1/4A3, 1/2A3 and A3 13mm motors.
Different motors with different thru-time curves are going to pressurize the piston differently?
it also seems to me that wind speed would have a detrimental effect on the rocket/piston tube assembly. Anybody ever seen such a combination hit with a strong wing and noticed how much it tilts before separation of the two?
