New Rocket Weight

The 6″ rocket is close to being all put together so I decided to get an updated weight for it.  It’s now 42.8 lbs.  The target is 45 lbs so I’m in good shape.  Both of those numbers are not including the motor, which according to the manufacturer’s web site is 5.8 lbs.  Here is the list of things that still need to be added:

  • Two CO2 cartridges for the parachute ejection system.
  • Electronics, including batteries.
  • Nuts and bolts to hold the coupler section to the body tubes.  I haven’t drilled the holes for those yet.
