UPDATE: This will now be flying at LDRS 31 in New York. I’ve dramatically reworked the electronics so I can now house a professional high speed HD camera in the gold exhaust port on the right side of the rocket.
Working on my major project for the Thundersrtuck Launch starting this Friday, March 30. Launch will be around 3pm March 30th.
This is a full size AGM-84 Harpoon Missile.
Height: 16 ft
weight: Approx 200 lbs fully loaded
motors: 3 6 grain 75mm M class motors, ~ 20000 Ns total impulse (which makes it an “O” motor, my first!)
For perspective, that is an 8 foot ladder in the photo above
Thank goodness I’m in good shape – to get this photo I had to carry the two upper sections of the rocket solo up the ladder and into the booster.
