Guys, I finaly managed to make suitable lift powder using White Ash as charcoal.

Its awesome fast. Only 5 grams lifts a 3" shell to a perfect altitude. Without confinement.

Congrats Red. Glad ya got it worked out. The lift examples you listed on the other forum sound like you’re getting there. Keep up the good work.

Well done!

I would say that the first sample in the video was noticeably slower and less powerful than any of the others.

I got the wood from a guy who sells wood for wood stoves. He has much more woods which are interesting to test.

Like linden wood. Its a very common tree here. And they grow very fast.

I will go do some more research and tests. I think I will make a nice charcoal table with all kind of woods he has there. Doing the test exacly as I did with the others.

Lift a dummy shell, and then note the ammount of bp needed to lift it too a proper altitude.

Damm, I love this hobby. So much stuff to get exciting about ;)
