Video of Green Flame "P" motor static fire
6" O-4280 with DEAP3 propellant pushes this 12" diameter, 120lb beast to 8900'
O-5000 cranked out enough power to get to 10,346'

First L size test of DEAP Green - Good but not perfect yet
Going to be reformulating and hopefully flying in a 6" in August

DEAP 2 in Kosdon 2550 case cranking out the thrust
in John Schultz' Ursa Minor
DEAP 1 flies in a Kosdon 1400 case in Jeff Levine's Big Banana
First firing of DEAP experimental propellant on our makeshift test stand.
Average thrust of 100lbs. for just less than a 5 second burn.
Stay tuned for bigger and better things from DEAP.
The retractable rail guides for the Cats Eye Bowling Ball Rocket.
These had to have a 1" throw in order to accommodate the bulge of the Bowling Ball.
Fabricated from 1" 6061-T6 Bar stock these units use a spring to retract the guides flush
with the body after leaving the rail and a Teflon slider to keep the rocket from getting scratched.
