Exactly.

Obviously the Liquid Engine is overall safer {if set up properly} because you can turn it off and on....while the solid must keep burning untill all of the fuel is consumed.

But it will be the same amout of fuel in each, I will determine thrust, length of burn, and altitude.

It uses the same launch vehicle, which will be equiped with one of my altimeters.
Except I will be using 2 engines on the solid fuel rocket. It should amount to a P rocket motor all together. I was going to do just 1, but the stability is lower.

Plus the liquid rocket is heavier untill some of the fuel is burnt off...and i still have not determined the total thrust or specific impulse of the Liquid one.
All I really have done at the moment is the launch vehicle.
But I will keep you updated.
