I worked with David Fliger on designing some custom av bay lids, which he manufactured. The altimeter came out great. Kudos to him and several other TRF vendors.

Here are the design points:

· 4-inch diameter bay configurable in 7.5-inch and 11-inch length sleds
· Tinder Raptor CO2 system on the main chute
· Eggtimer Proton and Quantum altimetee
· LabRat Rocketry pull switches
· RocketJunkies machined wire feedthrough on both ends
· RocketJunkies charge cups
· RocketJunkies custom bulkhead
· AltusMetrum Telemetrum transmitter/triple backup altimeter Eggtimer Tx transmitter for tracking
· Two or three Lipo batteries in 3d printed battery box holder (depending on configuration)
· 3d printed sled with a rounded edge to lay on the outside edge of altimeter compartment
· 3d printed guillotine clamp to keep the D-ring from knocking into CO2 assembly
· Antenna SMA connector port

But I truly appreciate some great products of TRF vendors and the service to the hobby that they provide.

Blue to the sky, red to the flamey end. Looks familiar, looks like a really nice job and attention to details.

Mike, That was the intended mnemonic, but I was paying so much attention to hole placement and layout that I did a brain f*** and got the color specification flipped.
