That is a good question.  I would say that you could still use a breakwire for 
timer activation.  And in my opinion this is a more reliable method than the G 
switch for what it's worth.

Would this include activation of avionics using a breakwire for low 
speed/g-force launches, or just using breakwires for lighting motors?

I think a launch controller is a type of ignition system.  They may be 
referring to cluster and staging ignition?  But yes, the TCC controller is 
great as is...

It references the switched in regards to motor ignition and seems to refer to 
the launch controller:

 

2-12.6 A rocket motor shall not be ignited by any of the following:

a. A switch that uses mercury.

b. “Pull wires” that disconnect or complete a circuit.

c. “Pressure roller” switches

 

----

 

It does not make reference to av-bar arming switches.

Hey All I have attached the 2012 Tripoli sanctioned rules and we are a Tripoli 
club so everyone needs to read them, print them carry them or however you want 
to help enforce and use our newest rules, I will get time this week to really 
study them but I noticed a couple of quick ones like

 

Section 2-18 Participation now reads in part:

"Non-HPR Fliers are allowed in the High Power Launch Area if escorted by 

a HPR Flier. A HPR Flier may escort and be accompanied by not more than 

two (2) non-HPR fliers in the High Power Launch Area. The HPR flier 

escort is required to monitor the actions of the escorted non-HPR 

fliers, and the escort is fully responsible for those actions and for 

the safety of those escorted."

 

There are other changes.  For example, the use of mercury switches, pull 

wires, and roller switches have now been banned.  This means there are 

various products by different manufactures that can no longer be used 

for air-starts.

 

 

I don’t want to due a review until I have had time to look the complete pages 
over.
