    Road to L1

    It's official; I am starting construction of my L1 rocket! I'm quite excited, and couldn't wait until Christmas to start assembling my electronics. As this is the first time I used a GPS system, I had to get quite a few components from Eggtimer Rocketry. I had a good time soldering together the...

    Dual Deploy Electronics

    Hello, just wanted to get a couple tips and tricks before my first dual deploy launch. Is there any tricks veterans use to ensure successful dual deploy launches? Specifically, my biggest concern is wires disconnecting from my EasyMini during flight. Thanks. Also, on an unrelated note, how hard...

    teleGPS question...

    So I am rebuilding my Genesis rocket to re-attempt my L.1 cert. I want to try to add a tracker to start getting familiar with the tech. I saw that the transmitter was 6.5 inches by itself, but one of the changes I'm making to the design is going with a 6 inch coupler instead of a 9 inch. I know...

    Issues with RRC2+ & Easy Mini

    My school team is launching our rocket this weekend and due to our negligence, we failed to pay attention to electronic configurations until today. Our original plan was to use the RRC2+ as our primary flight computer, EasyMini as backup flight computer, and Eggfinder TX mini as the GPS...

    Question about sensor filtering

    Hi! I'm in the process of programming a flight computer that I developed from the ground-up, and I was curious if people had insight into the best ways to solve for rocket position and orientation. I've seen a lot of information on Kalman filtering, but as far as I can tell those algorithms...

    Rocketry Payload Ideas

    I recently purchased and am starting to build a Public Missiles SWR-300 rocket kit. It is a 2.6 diameter rocket that boasts a generous 14.75” internal payload bay. I’m planning to use a Jolly Logic Chute Release for recovery which means I will not be employing any dual-deployment electronics...

    Temperature relation to electronics

    Does anyone have any experience with the effects of temperature on components in an electronics bay during a flight to say, 25,000 feet? The temperature at higher altitudes becomes low at 25000 feet, and I would like to know if there are any ways I can find out how components such as an...

    What is everyone using for a GPS?

    Hi all!! I am currently looking for a "cheaper" GPS system for my model rockets. I have seen plenty of "cheap" trackers on amazon however, they all require a monthly service fee which I want to stay clear from. The ones that don't have a service fee cost hundreds of dollars.. I am looking for...
