I know there has been a lot of discussion here about altimeter and port hole location. I have a project that I want to put a barometric altimeter (MAWD) in the nose cone shoulder. The main parachute will reside above the shoulder in a two piece nose cone. If I'm just using the MAWD for main chute deployment at 500', can I get away with putting the vent hole in the shoulder only? The MAWD will sample the pressure at ground level when armed and the nose cone will be ejected at appogee with another unit. Has anyone done this or have a unique venting idea? What am I not thinking about here? This will not be a supersonic speed demon.
