Whoa there, Tex!!! A J motor with over 5800 Newton-seconds? In my book, J motors top out at 1280 Ns. With an average thrust of 230 Newtons, that motor would burn for over 25 seconds... Me thinks we have a serious typo...

AMW lists the J230 at 995 NS. Just a slight error. And how did the come up with the .45? That is way too accurate.
Will you be at TCC on Sunday James?

You bet I will. Got a 3" Arliss-K rocket to test fly. Even have a team of students with a can-sat for it. I just hope the "W" stays away. I have to pop the main at altitude to deploy the can-sat, and blowing the main at 7K+ kind of goes against my grain. But, it's to support a team of students, and I need the practice with the Walston. Only flying a J415 in it. A regulation Arliss flight would use a K700. But there is no way to talk me into popping a main at 11K there. That's just not going to happen. Black Rock playa, yes. The dairy, no way. Don't want to have to drive to Bakersfield to recover it. 8^(
Thinking about bringing along the 6" Arliss-M, just to show it off. Can't wait to see the reaction when I tell people about the _FREE_ K700's and the _FREE_ M1419's!!!!
(Hehehehe... I love this hobby!!!!)
