Beach Shoot #1 - Yawn Style Micro-Rocket #5

Date: 2003-08-10


Very similar in construction to device #1, but the propellant was Dextrose fueled:

63% Potassium Nitrate

27% Dextrose

Fused with a meal-IO twisted paper fuse.


Little thrust.

The device ignited, again with about 1-2 seconds delay (those fuses are lethally fast - must use longer pieces next time).

There was little or no thrust generated. The rocket slapped about a little in the launch tube, but basically did nothing until burnout.
