Titan
Winner, July Design of the Month!
By: Doug Gardei

Doug, put a lot of effort into this very cool design that I have seen fly many times.

Doug provided the following information with his entry:

Hi Jim,

I do not know how many entries you got this month, but I decided to send this one.
The TITAN!!!

Built entirely out of Fliskits parts (with the exception of the Recovery System). This beast was the first rocket to utilize the new Fliskits 1 24mm + 4 13mm motor mount assembly. Using Two lengths of FlisKits BT-70 tubing, this beast is huge!.

I have flown the Titan twice. Once at TRF 2004 with a D12-5 and four A10-PT's. The second time was at the May 1st CMASS launch. She flew Absolutely beautiful on a E9 and 4 A10-PT's. Video of the second flight can be downloaded here:

Special note on construction: Do not use to much glue when joining the two lengths of BT-70 material. The Body Tube will buckle from the moisture in the glue.

Titan pdf. Fin patterns, basic part list, and Simulated Flight Data Titan.rkt. Original RockSim 7.0 File.

Other things needed that are not mentioned in the Parts List: Recovery System, and Launch Lugs. I chose to use a 18" nylon chute for recovery.  For the launch lugs, I opted for 1/4" inch. That way I can use either 3/16 or 1/4" rods.

Finally, the TRF thread about the Titan, which includes some construction photographs: http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6313

Let me know what you think

Doug
