Hey i'm starting to build liquid fueled rockets.(built 1 but injecter didnt work properly ) Does anyone have any plans to build a rocket or at least some tips.
I suggest you don't listen to Ki Man. HE can stand 50 feet away... I would stand at LEAST 50 m away.i suggest you launch it from at least a good 50 feet away from you
IF not then do what I do...get it sent to a store in Ogdensburg NY, (jsut over the border) and then drive down and pick it up. Of course, this is depending on how far Burlington is from teh border....Tom10331 said:yo thanks but do they send to Canadians
LOX from a welding store? I thought that was just gasseous oxygen in a high pressure cylinder.Tom10331 said:Thx Francis i just ordered some new things. (turbo pumps,tanks etc) For the fuel im using ethanol(ethly alcohol) and LOX from my uncles welding store.
I also hope it works like a dream to.
Tell you guys of the feed back from the launch(no date yet).

(get Nitrogen from liquid air to cool it)
I should spake the ingleese more welley (it's supposed to be my native tounge) :rofl:enigma said:You wouldn't be able to maintain a constant pressure in your tank as the LOX gets consumed without either a pump or an inert gas pressurant system EDIT: unless the reaction is REEEEALY slow.
If the pressure in the combustion chamber then gets larger than the tank pressure, the combustion will stop or you'll have a pretty explosion without a checkvalve.
Never mind all these guys' suggestions on safety... just go for it (and design a good combustion chamber and injector so that it doesn't blow).Hey i'm starting to build liquid fueled rockets.(built 1 but injecter didnt work properly ) Does anyone have any plans to build a rocket or at least some tips.
