MINUTE RUN

MINUTE TO STARTOnly four minutes, the athletes rakatomalala to prepare for the start. How much do you need to keep up with the time flying at the competition as if one moment: to install the model on the guide pin. To connect Elektrostal, to determine the atmospheric conditions at this point and calculate the direction of flight, accurately to execute the command “start!”.
To facilitate and significantly accelerate the implementation of all these operations will help the original starter installation, designed to suit the Tushino district of Moscow. It is, as experience has shown, easy to manufacture, compact, easy to handle, reliable itself and greatly improves the reliability of starting microrocket. The unit provides work with models weighing up to 0.5 kg Main parts: a platform-reflector clamp-clips to connect elektrozapalom and the hub mounting pad with alignment pin diameter from 2 to 7 mm.
 
The starting installation for sport model rockets
Home setting for sport model rockets:
1 — tripod, 2 — deck-deflector, 3 —mount, 4 — pin, 5 — model rockets, 6 — forceps-clamp, 7 —* wires from the remote, 8 — Promina compression of the jaws, 9 — housing, 10 — insulating insert, 11 sponge,12 — Electrosoul.

 
On a normal tripod camera mount notched legs and a platform-reflector, made of sheet duralumin with a thickness of 2 mm, providing the starting zone from the flame of the rocket engine. In the forceps, the details of which are cut and bent from stainless steel with a thickness of 2 mm, is clamped special Elektrostal. Sponge, isolated from forceps glass fibre laminate panels that serve as a pole contact of the power supply to the fuse. The node is fixed on the platform using the clamp supplied with wing nut that allows you to quickly bring it to the nozzle of the engine
 
Fuses made of cardboard triangles. At the apex of an acute angle is mounted nichrome spiral with a drop of the combustible mixture, at the same time the cardboard serves as an insulator for the two pieces of conductors. The hub mounting pad and the guide pin represents a dural sleeve with a threaded shank, a socket under the pin and screw fixation. The construction of our tripod allows you to adjust the angle between the guide pin and the horizon ranges from 90°to 60°.
 
New home setting provides almost instant connection elektrozapalom or Sammy. Loss of fuse from the engine nozzle and short circuit between the poles is practically impossible. The time of preparation of the model rocket to launch was reduced to one minute.
