Open Research Rocketry Flight Submission
We want to gather as much anonymous data about rocket flights ranging from simple model rockets through mid and high power amateur rocketry and research rocketry. The data will be periodically collated and shared publicly under an open source licence. Answer as many questions as you can for an individual flight! Please base your answers on the actual flight data rather than any simulation!
What date was the rocket flown?
Whereabouts geographically did the flight take place
What type of rocket was flown? (check multiple options if required)
Model rocket (Low power A-D)
Mid power rocket (EFG impulse)
High power rocker (H impulse and above)
Scale model rocket
Rocket for research purposes
Was the rocket a kit or scratchbuilt?
Scratchbuilt following someone elses design
Scratchbuilt designed by builder
If the model was a kit, please tell us the name of the kit
If the rocket was scratch built tell us some of the main construction materials and technique (ie cardboard and balsa fins or through fin glassed birch, phenolic tube etc)
Single stage, multi staging or clustered?
Single stage, single motor
Multistage (please tell us number of stage in the "anything else you want to tell us" last question)
clustered (please tell us about the cluster in the "anything else you want to tell us" last question)
clustered and multi stage
What is the main diameter of the airfame?
What type of propulsion?
Solid rocket motor, chemical propellant
Please tell us the make and model of motor
What was the total impulse/ motor rating for the flight?
What was the all up weight of the rocket? (the weight of the rocket with the motor and fully assembled).
Was the rocket flight successful?
Yes, nominal flight!
No CATO (catastrophe at take off)
No, Shred, (rocket shreded during early boost)
Yes, but flight characteristics different than expected (ie lower altitude than expected, motor chuffing, please tell us in the "anything else you want to tell us" last question)
What was the stability margin of the rocket in calibres? (How far was the centre of pressure behind the centre of gravity?)
What altitude did the rocket achieve?
What was the total flight time of the rocket?
What was the flight time to apogee?
What was the flight time to first deployment?
At what altitude did first deployment or separation occur?
What was the flight time from ignition to second deployment?
At what altitude did second (main) deployment occur?
What type of recovery was used?
Dual deploy with 2 recovery systems (ie drogue and main parachute)
Drogueless dual deploy
Passive recovery (ie tumble recovery)
if you used parachutes for recovery please tell us some more details (diameter and materials, form factor ie; annular, crossform, flat sheet etc)
Did the rocket have electronics/altimeter/telemetry etc? (select mutliple answers if required
Yes a none deploying altimeter
Yes a deploying altimeter
Other altimeter/avionics, timers, apogee detection etc (please tell us in the other section below)
On board video capture
Stabilisation (TVC or active canards etc please describe in other section)
Anything else you want to tell us?
