Hi all - after many questions to all you talented folks, I completed my first av-bay with a FW GPS Tracker and magnetic switch. The av-bay goes into a LOC IRIS 3 payload. This not a dual recovery setup. Instead, we stayed with the standard design and will use an Aerotech H 112J-10, as it runs out well on RockSim.

As an aside, I haven’t launched a rocket since my 30 year old daughter was a little girl. I started rocketry in 1967…with a ALPHA 1 from Estes. Had a few others back then. Going for my L1 certification on this launch.CC530209-C060-4CA0-BAF1-85721ABAFE89.jpeg

I am also adding an Astrocam to the airframe. Just for kicks. I’ll keep y’all posted on my results next month.

One more suggestion... zip tie all the wires to the sled so they can't move. That will prevent anything from coming loose in flight.
