12 Meter Test

A very short write up about calculating the speed a rocket reaches traversing a 12 meter rope

After acquiring a longer rope, I have setup a Test Track of 12.4 Meters
This video shows the results from the first Rocket tested there

12.4 Meters Crossed in 2.16 Seconds equals roughly 5.723 Meters per second
Calculated From d / (f / fps)
12.4 / (65 / 30) = 5.723

Now with a longer track in place the resolution of the turnout should increase, the end stop should inflict less damage to the engine due to reduced velocity, and acceleration should be able to be partly measured
