I have also seen occluded nozzles in the estes products. This would give
you low thrust, but I don't believe a longer burn duration. I think the
chamber pressure and temp goes up, hopefully it dosen't split the casing.
The aerotech system is SO much better! Graphite nozzles, O-Rings, Composite
propellant, which dosen't crack, because it's like a pencil eraser, gummy
not like a rock.
