    Avionics Bay/Sled Build Thread?......Sure!

    Hello All- I was beginning a new build of an electronics bay for a custom Mac-Performance kit I got with a little Christmas spending money. When I got about 20% into, it I had the idea of doing a build thread. I don't ever remember seeing build thread for an avionics bay. Often people (me...

    Three Electronics Bays

    I have spent some time evolving thoughts and designs for electronics bays. What I desire in an electronics bay is: RF transparent because I want to put telemetry broadcasting electronics inside the bay. This means no threaded rods the length of the bay that block RF. Maximum space for...

    Stratologger CF

    Hi, I am new to model rocketry and have purchased the Stratologger CF. It lists in the manual that for example you can deploy at 700 feet. But is that at 700 feet after apogee? Or is it 700 feet from the ground?

    3D Printing X-sled for 3" and 4" rockets

    Inspired by https://www.rocketryforum.com/threads/av-sled-first-printing-project-feedback-appreciated.151171/, I thought I would make a "plain" X-shaped avionics sled. No customization here, just a blank canvas for all your electronics and batteries. Sized for both 3" and 4" bays. These...

    Nosecone AV Bays... Pros & Cons

    I'm building three 4" diameter Binder Design kits, including an Excel Dual Deploy... However, I'm looking to build it with a baffle located at the normal AV bay location, and I want a redundancy for the ejection charge. This poses a problem... If the baffle occupies the space that the AV bay...
