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...

Re: Purple Parrot - MD 38mm

I've finally managed to put together a video for the Purple Parrot record flight.

Hope you all enjoy it, it was quite complex to construct.

Re: Joe Turner's 38mm Scratch-Build

Question: Can someone advise me how far the CTI adpator extends beyond the casing end in a 6G setup? I need this so I can more accurately place the engine block. The flange on the adapter sits flush on the rear closure. You should just be able to add the length from the flange up to the case length...

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

Quick Update Life is getting in the way of this currently :( . I still have not had anything like a good look at the logging and meaningful analysis. Basic synopsis: :arrow: Flight was nominal, like any standard HPR flight. It was a bit of a big gravity turn by the looks of it, but no worse than ot...

Re: Amateur rockets to the 100 km von Karman line for suborbital space.

More details on the project page. Looks like they are using open rocket, would be nice to have a copy to look at.
