Rocket Motor RC Ignition System Testing – September 16, 2018

Sep 16, 2018 Propulsion System R&D

This afternoon we ran field tests of our custom designed RC ignition system using a conventional model rocket.  Three attempts were made and we had three successful launches this afternoon at our Crooked Creek Facility.

Here is a short video of the tests.

A remotely controlled ignition system is an integral part of our hybrid rocket engine design.
