Re: LoRa Communications

I've been playing with some LoRa Arduino shields from Jaycar. My intention is to use them for telemetry, but I haven't taken it very far yet - too many other projects!

An additional notice regarding the June week-long Ardlethan launch. Although some members are planning to travel to Ardlethan after the low/mid power launch at Yass on the Sunday afternoon, there might not be sufficient time to complete the setup for Monday's launch at 8:30. Further setup might be n...

Re: Simple to use GPS System?

You also have the Bluetooth option on the Eggfinder receivers if you do want to use the apps. LabRat Rocketry have some good sleds for the Mini GPS.

Re: I've had an interesting couple of months. (pic heavy)

The AITC up at Mount Stromlo is a great place to work. I had over six years up there working in a team of engineers in the Electronics Engineering Section on some cutting edge projects. Unfortunately, I retired from there just as the balloon project was starting up about 3 years ago. However, at tha...

Re: Carbon dioxide cartridge rockets

Totally agree with what Derek & George have suggested. That CO2 rocket is very unstable and potentially dangerous. Building a basic water rocket & launcher is no more difficult that the ones in the video.
