Re: Don't Debate This, Too

Well I guess that answers some questions, it’s annoying that some much goes right but one issue and not so good an outcome. Any chance someone at black rock will dig it out for you? I’m thinking there’s still plenty to glean from it even if the electronics are dead, especially examining the motor ca...

Re: Vertical Trajectory System (with some 3D printed parts)

That’s a neat little flight computer and great that it’s open source. With heat concerns, I’m reasonably ceartain that this has caused a number of failures over the years. You’ve heard the story “it was working on the pad, but then no events” always missing the part about baking in the sun for half ...

Re: Nike Apache Half-Scale Project

Nice work on the 3D printing - would make a handy little product.

Re: Don't Debate This, Too

Hope you get it back Mike.

I’m a little confused by the report Drew, to drop 38k feet in 2 minutes would indicate no deployment. Also something went wrong going up as it was way too low, but continued transmitting.

Re: Purple Parrot - MD 38mm

Totally awesome video Matt. +1. That's an amazing video which I can only assume took a ton of work. I almost don't want to ask but how difficult was it to get the speed and altitude data to mesh with the GPS track? The hardest part by far was figuring out how to get google earth to produce time acc...
