I'm in (very) preliminary discussions with a couple of manufacturers about a replacement for both Rapiers and old Jetex-type motors. I've made my own views known, telling the guys not to stray too far from the Jetex/50 Rapier L-2 specification. Good QA/QC and CE certification de rigeur. 150 mN 20 sec or so, weight no more than 12-15 grams, dimensions no more than a Jetex 50.
This makes sense to me - but what do you other jet jockies think?
Sounds fair to me, I'd be happy with 15 to 20 seconds and not exceeding 200mN. Beggars can't be choosers, I'd just like to know what size / scale to build in. The Germans make very good rockets you know. One nearly had my Grandads name on it. He was in a corrugated iron latrine when a V2 accelerated his motion! He was dug out and hosed down, all true but meant in a humorous sort of way.
Perhaps a miniature Walter rocket with HTP and potassium permanganate. Can you imagine our apparel when igniting, it would look like an orgy for leather perverts.
