For those of you not up to date, that voyage is to carry our 10+ lb payload to 10,000 ft. After many design changes the rocket is almost ready to travel to Utah with a fresh coat of paint and an eager team wanting this rocket to succeed. A lot of hard work has been put in over the last month. We were faced with the challenge of adjusting the configuration of the carbon cougar to compensate of the higher launch altitude and it being over 100 degrees outside this week – this meant an underweight rocket needed some mass! With a lack of time and resources to downgrade our engine, we are adding weight to the payload and around the engine casing. Now that 95% of the work is done, we have one final push to make it to competition.
Wish us luck!
