We’ve had a busy week in the workshop working on the Shadow. We’ve been mostly focusing on getting the launcher complete, so we can pressure test it and the rocket. We want to test the pressure chamber before we attach the payload bay and fins, because if it bursts, it would be wasted effort. However, we can only test the pressure chamber with the launcher.
The latest set of updates with photos is available here:
Here is a progress photo of the launcher release mechanism. This launcher is being built for 500+ psi pressures.
