Armadillo Mod rocket full power test firing

A wicked burn by the Armadillo Aerospace Mod “Dalek” rocket.

“This represents around 180,000 lbs of total impulse, near the upper end of what the FAA defines as a Class 3 Amateur Rocket. In the letter scale used in small rockets, it would be a ‘T’.

The engine runs on liquid oxygen and denatured ethanol. This rocket will be flying payloads for the Nasa Commercial Reusable Suborbital Research program, aka CRuSR” -Armadillo Aerospace

…and if you have a pair of Red/Blue 3D glasses you can watch the same test in 3D!
