Senza Confini

By Ryan Catanesi

Scratch

Senza Confini is a 54mm maximum performance rocket designed around the 54/2800 case from Aerotech, for the K250W. It is only 31 inches in length. It features a SUPERSHORT design, Tower-launched design, G12 Fillament wound nose cone, a T1000G Fillament wound Carbon fiber airframe, Dragon plate quasi Isotropic Carbon fiber fins, a custom designed and milled 6061-T6 tailcone, Dual deploy, and an automotive paint job.

With a forward aiframe section swap, Senza can also fly a CTI Pro54-6GXL case.

The Senza Confini project is to further experiment with the capabilities of reaching extraordinarily high altitudes with commercial motors while maintaining the 3FNC concept and an airframe. The goal is to reach above 30,000 AGL with K class impulse. Normally these altitudes can only be acheived using a "flying casing" style rocket, in which there is no airframe. But, with a year of design work, literally over 150 simulations for just one motor, extensive autocad work, extensive Fluid dynamics simulations, extensive engineering and careful craftsmanship, we may be able to break that boundry . Hence Senza's name - Italian : " NO BOUNDARIES "

Her first 4 motors are already purchased- Aerotech K250W, CTI K300CL, CTI L640DT, CTI L935IM

She will make her maiden flight at AeroNaut 2012.
