Motors and Machining

Martlet 2 is powered by an O-8000 Pro150 Cesaroni motor. This is the largest certified motor available and, over the course of its 5.12s burn time, produces an average thrust of 8000N. We purchased the motor last weekend from Animal Motor Works and will be meeting it for the first time at BALLS.

In other exciting news all the aluminium stock is now out of the basement lab and being machined. WPPE are machining the various couplers, fins and the aft cone whilst the CUED workshop are kindly machining the fin can ( at a length of 480mm and with a diameter of 186mm it is Martlet 2’s biggest metal component).
