Here is the next part to be made.
This is a fairly heavy motor, but it won't matter. With 1000 lbs of thrust there is no doubt in my mind that it will get itself off the ground when it's time to. The purpose is to build something relatively simple and at low cost, and to sharpen my skills before moving on to a larger project that I've been toying with for the past 10 years or so. There is some excess material in this design, so the part could go through a weight reduction process, but there is really no point for a static test.
