Engines and rocket design.

This is a great opportunity you've given us Carl. I appreciate the chance to help out in any way I can.

Carl's Resume:

My name is Carl McLawhorn from Knightdale, NC. I have been flying since the late 1950's. We have been flying at Whitakers, NC since 1999 in NAR-TAR Section #582. I am Level 2, but prefer the smaller rockets, less money and much less walking.

My interest is in all areas, but the one I am fondest of is engine design and production.

My name is Sheryl. I have built and flown 1 rocket. I know nothing about the mechanics of flying but I do know what parts are needed. Oh yes, I'm Carl's wife. What ever the team comes up with, I will have the responsibility of putting it in bags, boxes ,or tubes. Sometimes I will be making parts.
5. I want the team to help us (Semroc) become a better rocket company with innovative ideas.

Real Name: Sean Lannan, NAR #42785, formerly TRA #250, Portland, OR.

Currently unaffilliated, but my heart is with CMASS back in MA.

I've been flying since 1967

I hope to get off my butt and contribute a little more instead of just answering the occasional question here and there.

Primary interests are building techniques, design and motors (engines). Tho I know precious little about the latter, I hope to learn a thing or two here.

S.

5. What you want the team to accomplish: I'd like to see us focus on areas that will bring new folks into the hobby.

Hello, everyone!

1. Real Name and City/State: Craig McGraw, in Mobile, Alabama

2. Local flying club: Not affiliated with any club. I fly at a local area elementary school on weekends.

3. Year started flying: Approximately 1970/1971 with a plastic Vashon-style freon-powered "toy" rocket received as a gift. An Estes catalog was part of the package. My first "real" rocket was the Astron Avenger which never flew, but it wetted my taste buds...

4. What you hope to gain from this experiment: Pushing the limits of current design technology; experimenting with different design ideas; making model rockets that are more challenging and personally satisfying.

5. What you want the team to accomplish: To become a force to be reckoned with in the model rocket industry. To be every bit the equal of Estes, if not their superior. To be able to alter the course of the hobby. To lead, not simply be pulled along by the dominant industry player.

6. Your primary interest area (engines, rocket design, support, building, etc.): Design and flight testing.

1. Real Name and City/State.
Steve Naquin
LaPlace, Louisiana


2. Local flying club.
NAR# 85518 Level 2
NAR Section #596 SOLAR (Southeastern Louisiana Rocketry) - Baton Rouge, LA

TRA# 677 Level 2
Tripoli Louisiana Prefecture #10 - Winnsboro, LA


3. Year started flying.
1969

4. What you hope to gain from this experiment.
Knowledge. I'll gain by sharing.

5. What you want the team to accomplish.
100% success on whatever project goals we are collectively requested to contribute to. That as a team our contributions would be used in Semroc production products.

6. Your primary interest area (engines, rocket design, support, building, etc.)
Rocket design. Building kits and building scratch built rockets designed with RockSim. Primarily I prefer to use LT series tubing and parts and prefer designs with 24mm and 29mm single or cluster motor mounts. I fly mostly mid power, D - G motors. When I have the opportunity to fly at our HPR field in Winnsboro I usually plan one HPR flight and the rest are mid power - prototypes, scratch builds or SLS kits.
