Claudio is still working on a Jetex analogu. He emailed me after seeing the video of my thrust rig. He's going to make one. (maybe I should go into production)
Have a look at his Youtube channel, above, and see what you think.

Here's a picture of the motor package Claudio has produced.



My intention is to fire it up on my thrust rig and see what happens.

I tested Claudio's fuel some years back and found it somewhat lacking in performance (this may have been caused by trouble I was having with the sealing washers) and a rather short run, hope it has improved now, the package is looking good though, tempting. Will await your findings with interest.

Here is what I logged yesterday using the 50 motor and pellets that Claudio sent me.
As soon as I get chance I'll do a few more plots.
The loaded, ready to use motor/fuel/gauze etc weighed in at 11gms, Stupidly cleaned it out after use, I should have weighed it again as the pellet residue is retained by the guaze.

This is an interesting thrust profile. I wonder if the heat retaining effect of the guaze causes the combustion rate to increase. Interesting...

Hi Terry,
not impressed - 95 mN at the start? 10 measly seconds? It's what I found way back in (2013?) and it burst after two runs. This prevented further experiments with different diameter orifices, which Claudio was quite keen on. The mounting clip is horrible too.

TSP L-2 motors much, much better!
