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? :huh:

Hi Roger,
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.:blink: Can you imagine our apparel when igniting, it would look like an orgy for leather perverts. :sick: :lol:
Andy.
