100mm LOX/Wax Hybrid Rocket Motor Test

Video Caption: Too much LOX on board, motor ran out of fuel but LOX kept flowing burning up the liner, other wise nice burn. In a perfect world, the oxidizer and fuel run out at exactly the same time, in less than perfect burning, you hope to run out of oxidizer (LOX) first. At 0:54 seconds into the video you can see the paraffin fuel being extruded out the nozzle.
