    Astrologix flight computers.

    Hi all! I've been putting together something pretty exciting and wanted to share it with you. I'm working on a flight computer that's designed with rocket hobbyists in mind. Here's a quick overview: - It's built to track flights up to 100K feet. - You can record details for up to 15 flights...

    Determining Orientation Off Vertical for Accelerometer Filtering Usage

    I'm working as part of my university's Spaceport team to develop a SRAD flight computer to assist with experiment control and future use with an airbrakes system for hybrid motors. We're looking to use a mix of baro + accel + GPS for state derivation, and one of the key points is trying to...

    Dual Deployment Flight Computer w. Break wire support

    Hi all! I recently had an issue with an Eggtimer Quasar detecting a launch while still on the pad (probably not it's fault, it was abused quite a bit during the integration procedure). I'm looking for a flight computer that supports breakwire launch detect, however the ones I've been...

    Continuity Short/OKAY/Failure solution with High-Side Power Monitor

    Hey all, I'm relatively new here, I'm working on an ejection channel driver, and I realized that most continuity check systems in commercial dual-deploy systems would give a false positive on a short-circuit failure. This was kinda concerning to me, as I know wiring is rarely perfect, and I...

    Quaternion calculation help

    Hello guys, I am calculating quaternions from MPU6050 and it works mostly when i move it to roll and pitch but for round movement it drags out i think. Sorry for my bad explanation but i am attaching a video and my code. Can you check it please ? void GyroSignals() {...

    AspireONE- New Kid on the block

    Hey Fellow Rocketry Geeks 🤓 I've recently joined this addiction and can't stop. I'm new to Rocketry but not new to electronics, programming and mechatronics. Rocketry allows me todo all of the above. I live in Canada and LPR is my only choice. But that should not be a limitation. As a result I...

    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...

    Does anyone here have experience with LORA Radio for flight computers or the Meshtastic system?

    I recently purchased a device called a LILYGO T-Beam, which is a supposedly long range LORA communicator usually used for hikers outside cell networks to broadcast back their GPS location when they have no signal. It is based on the ESP32 architecture and is theoretically programmable to send...

    MissileWorks RRC3 not recognized on laptop

    We're a student team trying to build a sounding rocket, for which we are using MissieWorks RRC3 as our primary flight computer. We have used the standard adapter given to connect it to our laptop. But as soon as I connect it to the laptop, it says "device malfunctioned". When I checked the...

    Flight Computer

    Hello, We will participate in a rocket competition. We will ascend to 5000 feet altitude. We want to use a commercial flight computer in our rocket. We need to communicate with the rocket and receive various data (altitude pressure-temperature etc.). With this system, we also need to activate...

    Can someone identify this?

    Got this from a friend, he got it from one of his friends and had no idea what it is. Anyone have any info on it? If nothing else it's a cool piece to collect but I'd love to be able to fly it.

    Flight Computers: Accelerometers vs Barometric Sensors

    I've got some experience with the basic eggtimer flight computer, which I understand is a barometric sensor based flight computer. I'm now working towards my L3 and needing to invest in a 2nd flight computer to meet the redundancy requirements. I've heard that for an L3-cert level flight...
