Balcony Shoot #5 - Meal Rocket #2

Date: 2003-08-29


Almost identical of Meal Rocket #1 of the same batch.

However it was rammed without cavity and drilled out after sealing the bulkhead. This is was done to test and difference between the drilled-out and mandrel rammed construction techniques.


CATO, similar to #1.

It did seem to thrust less before it exploded. The rocket was not recovered, but the failure is assumed to be identical.

No difference was seen between the the two construction techniques, they both sucked equally! ;-) A more scientific test will be conducted when I get a BP meal rocket that doesn't suffer a containment failure.
