Design and construction process

Design and Construction Process

  • We used a PNC-80k nose cone

  • Due to weight we used a F24-4W motor

  • We designed our own fins

  • BT80 body tube

  • We purchased three 70” x 7”

  • Rocket parts were chosen due to cost and supply

  • Rocket was built with tools such as sandpaper, glue, and drills

  • RocketSim Program was used as an aid in the design process


Teamwork

Teamwork

  • The team worked together on building the rocket.

  • Jon constructed the body tube

  • The construction of the egg compartment was mainly done by Disa, Ben and Mattie

  • The streamers were ironed and shaped by Samantha and Becca

  • Disa and Kathleen worked on the fins


Flight testing process

Flight Testing Process

  • First fin design caused the rocket to spiral up.

  • First egg compartment was to heavy and had to be rebuilt

    Post 1010 Team 8186: Launch


Lessons learned

Lessons learned

  • A weight concentration towards the center of the rocket will cause it to descend with a horizontal tilt, increasing flight time

  • Time is not to be underestimated

  • Flight inconsistency may be controlled by adjusting rocket’s mass
