I think this will make the entire spudfiles community jealous.
Great job, Nice finish.

Although I was brought up with english, it's still fascinating all the possibilities it has, it's also one of the least literal languages, which I derive a lot of fun from.

Innuendo is near impossible in Latin (the dead one) without already knowing english.

Anyway hybridwise, I don't think I've commented here, so many props to Larda if he sees this. Otherwise everything I'd say has been said.

Completely and utterly amazed by this hybrid. Very nice work. Machining, everything. Great Job.

Yes, it certainly is a fantastic piece of engineering and craftsmanship. Rather unfortunate is the fact that in the 3+ years since HyGaC20 was built, we've only had one or two launchers posted on the site that even begin to approach this level of innovation, performance and overall impressiveness.

It does looks great, great performance and impressiveness, but I thought it uses a burst disc right :? ? If that´s the case I don´t think it´s innovative, BUT impressive for sure!

Prior to the debut of HyGaC20, the highest attempted hybrid mix had been 20X. This launcher exceeded that mark by an order of magnitude.

If you don't consider such a feat to be innovation, I think you have a rather unusual definition of the term.

I saw that 190 mix, yes it´s impressive but there isn´t technical innovations, just material :roll: sorry I REALLY DON´T want to offend anybody

Innovations present in HyGaC20:

1. New holder capable of using brass plates as rupture diaphragms (and capable of sealing them perfectly, and without a consumable sealing face).
2. Design of a "sparkplug" capable of holding a fine wire such that it ignites almost the entire chamber volume at once when heated with a low voltage source, and which can seal against ~20kpsi... repeatedly.
3. Sealing fuel lines with high pressure, steel-steel sealing face needle valves, owing to the discovery that no exposed, traditional sealing face material could survive the firing process more than a few times.
4. Design of saboted darts which can survive 20kpsi base pressure.

*note that these aren't world firsts but they are, so far as I can tell, Spudfiles firsts

It may not have a fancy new type of valve, but this hobby isn't all valves and auto-loaders. HyGaC20 is one of the most innovative launchers ever posted here.

ah sorry, didn´t knew that, not a hybrid guy. Didn´t notice these things.
