vonbraun3Steve Anderson is planning on staying busy at HellFire this year, he has lots of big projects. His biggest has been named "Werner von Braun" in honor of the Chief V-2 Scientist. The rocket is a PoleCat Aerospace kit and weighs in at 11 pounds empty and could weigh nearly 20 pounds with motor, recovery and electronics. Steve is planning on using dual electronics with PRM to support dual deployment. He's considering his Rocketman R7 parachute but is not sure if it will be big enough.

His engine choices at this time are the J570, K185 and K700.  He hasn't settled on which one quite yet but he does have the K motors ready to go.

 

 

The PoleCat V2 kit features a fiberglass nosecone, pre-fiberglassed and slotted body tube, Machined Baltic Birch fins and rings.

The von Braun should be an exciting flight to watch! Thanks for sharing it with us Steve!
