Sneak Preview ...

Here is a sneak preview of the Polaron G2 rocket in the Phase 1 configuration. We decided to extend the rocket by another spliced quad for just over 21L of goodness.:) It's just on 3m long (~10 feet). When launched at 250psi, it will be the pyro equivalent of an H500.

Probably another two or three more days work is required before it's first test flight. Simulations for this rocket are looking quite good, and even more interesting for the boosted version. Though real life never quite agrees with the sims so we'll just have to fly it to see the actual performance.
