Hey guys and gals, my Rocketry team from Tennessee Tech University (Cookeville, TN) will more than likely be joining y'all on October 14ths launch. We have a project that we are needing to send up. Our home field in Manchester, TN is more than likely done for this season (and mybe forever ☹️). I have been in contact with Bridgett and everything is a go for us to launch our rocket. The only issue that faces our team is we need a motor!!!! I have been trying to get in contact with Ken at performance hobbies but it seems like he is very busy at the moment. We need a CTI pro38 3 grain reload. Either the I236 Blue streak or the I345 White thunder will do (and we might be able to use another reload depending on what is offered). I'm just wondering if anyone who will be attending the launch has one of these reloads that we can buy off of them. We will be travelling 7ish hours so it would make us feel good knowing we have a motor. Also if you have a better way of contacting Ken that would be awesome as well! Thanks and look forward to hopefully flying at y'all's field! -Drew ...
Drew - what's up with Manchester? I loved that field many years ago when I came out for Southern Thunder. I know there were some changes with plantings and such reducing the area to recover in but it was still viable the last time I was there (too long ago).
Drew I will look at my stocks. I may have a 3 grain I on hand. I'm in Charlotte NC area so you will have to detour a bit to get it but I've made the drive from Manchester to Charlotte in 7 hours myself. I'm about 2 hours from the field in Camden.
Brad Shea please let me know if you have what we need and we might be able to work something out! Thanks!
I don't have those specific motors. I have a 3 grain I212 Smokey Sam, a 3 grain H565 Vmax, a 4 grain I470 White Thunder, and a 5 grain I350.
Brad Shea thanks for checking! Let me run some Sims and see if any of those will work.
The only CTI 38 I have is a 3 grain I175 white. I have lots of Aerotech if you can use them (I have hardware) 3 grain H999 warp 9 and I357T, 4 grain
Tom Binford thanks for the offers/help (sorry for the late reply as well). We actually were able to obtain a motor from a friend of mine here in Tennessee. Hope to see y'all this weekend!
Have a good drive and a successful flight!
Brad Shea it actually turned out that we are able to fly in Manchester this weekend. We got word from MC2 yesterday that the owner is letting us finish up the season tommorow! In the future we will more than likely join y'all in Camden!
