D1 Glitter gebruiken boven op de spindel als delay?

Recommended Posts

De vraag was. Kan je D1 glitter gebruiken boven de core van een vuurpijl? Dit geeft een mooie tail.

(sorry ging iets niet goed bij het moderaten. grtz Rocketier)

The composition designer suggests dampening with 6% plain water with 1 part of boric acid dissolved in it when pressing comets or pumping stars. It need not be ball milled if your components are already sufficiently fine, just screen together, moisten and granulate through a coarse sieve ready for pressing/pumping.

I used it as delay for a 3/8 rocket.  It was about 50% slower than RP.   It didn't require priming for a light burst but priming would likely be necessary for a hard break..
