I provided a full list of materials that I’ll be using to build the Darkstar Extreme, but just to offer a little preview on what the completed rocket will look like, here are some of the specs. And the picture below is just an example of the finished version – to be clear, I don’t usually post pictures that aren’t my own, but my rocket will look similar to this once it’s done (just probably a different paint job).
- Length: 101 in. (about 8.5 ft)
- Dry weight: 223 oz (about 14 lbs)
- Airframe diameter: 4 in.
- Motor mount diameter: 75mm
- Altimeter/ flight computer: TeleMetrum
- Backup altimeter: TBD
- Main parachute: 8 ft diameter Rocketman parachute
- Drogue parachute: 2 ft diameter Rocketman parachute
- Motor: TBD
I’ve already started construction, so I’ll have a lot more updates coming soon.
