In the early stages of the project we looked at the three main types of rocket: solid, liquid and hybrid propellant.
Not that rockets aren't cool, but it's hard for the layman to get really excited about which kind of hybrid propellant is going to maximize efficiency.
After years of research of hybrid propellant system, NCKU Aerospace Science and Technology Center has fully grasped the key point of the best combination of fuel and oxidizer for the highest efficiency, choosing 50% paraffin, 50% HTPB (50p) fuel grain and N2O oxidizer fuel to acquire a stable 300kg thrust.
