PARS first Hybrid launch Planned

PARS ventures into hybrid is taking longer than expected. But there is good news. Kes has decided to learn Hybrid technology as part of his DoE, Dan is considering a Hybrid project (to be decided) and we've found out that Oliver's 29mm rocket, the Oli 4, can be easily converted to use our SkyRipperSystems hybrid motor H78. I've asked Dan and Kes to start to arrange for some of the Chimera build to happen at their schools, and I'll work with Oliver on the Oli 4 conversion. This involves putting in apogee ejection into the nosecone.

So the first hybrid launch is likely to be Oli 4. The exact launch date is uncertain, but is likely to be at the Nov EARS event.
