Re: Another mighty initial thrust idea
Poor Coco: Thanks for answering my query. I still contend that the masses involved are purposefully low and this makes it difficult to create balancing forces. I suppose all that can be tested at ground level so not so much of a gamble.
I suggest that in order to maximise inertia in three dimensions a good design might be to arrange the payload into four equal masses mounted on the end of relatively long rods of equal length and arranged to form a tetrahedron centred on the base of the launch rod. This might also lend itself to some good camera angles.
