V3 MKII AND K1 Test flight

Finally got round to editing a short video of yesterdays launches we launched V3 MKII 1st after a rebuild from last years explosion we had no such this time as we had two crash landings post video analysis suggested that there was not enough weight in the nose which caused it to arc over  and possibly the fins acted as a wing also the launch speed didnt look great maybe larger nozzle or a spliced pair might help ideas for future mods. K1 got its maiden flights 4 launches 4 successes it showed promising signs that our splices can handle 120psi we played with nozzles to and found 9mm worked very well heres a short video of the days highlights enjoy


  1. Hey Dan,

    Looking really good! :D Im sure you'll get v3 to fly one day :)

    Regards Doug

  2. hey doug hopefully v3 will be flying soon got to do some 3 litre splices that should help loads

  3. Hi Dan, great to see you back launching your rockets. :) That V3 flight was great. It reminds me of an actual V2 launch I saw on YouTube that performed a similar flight.

    I'm looking forward to more flights from your team this year.
