L1 - Loc Forte'

Post by Wood » Tue, 21 Sep 1999 04:00:00



Built a Loc forte which I'd like to use for a l1 cert..

What motors would be a good choice?  I'd prefer a reload, and I'd buy the
hardware before hand, but do I go with a 29mm/60 100 180 240?

Thanks in advance...

Don't know about Forte, but, for sure, 29/60-100 is not going to get you
to level 1. I also plan a certification soon and I would be going with
H128 (29/180) in PML Small Endeavour.

My L1 rocket was a bit smaller, but the H128 gave it a real ride. Thus I'll
suggest that reload in the 29/180.  When I bought my hardware I also bought the
100 sleeve which gives me the marvelous G104T.  Depending on your launch field,
you might also consider the 180/240 motor system.  Your call, but I still say
the 29/180 is the heart of the moment.

My opinion only,

I certed w/this rocket on an H97 - great slow liftoff, long burn, perfect
apogee deployment. You'll need the 29/240 casing which also accommodates the
H180 and H220.

I did not cert on my Forte, but it flies quite well on an H180, with a little
reinforcing. A bit high for a cert flight.
