Park Shoot #1 - Small Experimental Greenmix Rocket #5

Date: 2003-07-25


Al foil nozzle, bulkhead was paper wadding and a little blue-tac. Casing was cardboard from a matchbox sleeve taped around drift. Same propellant and fuse as all 'Small Experimental Greenmix Rocket', KNO3 75 parts, C 15 parts, S 10 parts, each finely ground and then mixed well.

Stabilizer was kebab stick.


Never ignited, the fuse was a completed failure.

The motor was not refused, and was instead dismantled for study. The propellant was reused to make electrical ignitors for future projects.
