So after a month of work and making a design from scratch, I finally have a rocket launcher. Well, the inside of one. I plan on adding a few more things before adding a full fledged video. I want to have a system that will have the rocket launch only if the rocket launcher is up. Also, I want efficient flight for the rocket. If it backs up, I could have it explode in my arm. Kydex may protect me from the heat, but not all the shards. If it delays, it could have terrible results, and we wouldn't want this happening:
After doing a little math, I made up a few equations. Here are a few.
a = acceleration
^ = electrical energy
W = Weight of the suit
* = EDF energy
F = Force
Diamond = Electrical energy
g = Gravity to fly
d = aerodynamics
S = Suit exterior build design
F1 = Beginning flight F2 = Middle flight F3 = End flight
I have about 50 equations, but these are just some basics. They give some explanations onto flight patterns, energy use, and aerodynamics. This was originally for flight, but i realized I would be able to use this into the rocket.
I am using an Estes C6-5 solid rocket engine. The engine has a 5 second delay, a thrust of 1.6 seconds, and has 3.4 pounds of thrust. It also has a total impulse of 10.00 seconds. the lift weight is 113 grams. The rocket will decrease over time. I put in some metallic sodium and gunpowder into the rocket cone. There are no fins. As @ActualDragon said, I may want to have Co2 engines.
The engine launcher was hot-glued then sauntered together. I will make a video of it tomorrow. I still have an inadequate energy source. What I need now is protection. Without it, things can end up gory. Thankfully, kydex takes care of the heat. It will only become more bendable as it gets heated, and won't heat my hand. It also protects my arm. For fumes, I use a tube that directs the gases to another direction.
I now make a cover for the armor. Luckily for me, I have money from potential sponsors. As this is once a month,
I also am going to use this in a science fair brought by my school district. It is for middle school. I hope that I win. Last year, I made a 4ft humanoid robot. Maybe I can integrate it to the suit for a sentry system.
In related news, I may have someone to help me code. Nowadays, kids are obsessed with Social Media, and I prefer to be different. Most of the kids think i'm crazy or lying. This is because they have not tried. I like thinking freely and without boundaries. By my luck, I actually found a friend of mine's who knew how to code like me, but never bothered mentioning it. I have another who will help in the assembly of the suit, because art is his element (I'm not good at art).
In Monday I may spray paint. I will put in Jarvis (or what I have). If everything goes as planned, I should be talking about repulsors, but going a little into exosuits and flight. I also may give a video of the launcher being tested. Keep in mind I spent a month making something from CGI (said to be "impossible") into an actual, solid prototype. Go online and you probably won't see a setup like mine's.
(I have to stop with the Iron man memes)
If you want to see something, let me know.
Thanks to everyone on Hackchat!
Well, until next time.
