what are the solder pads in the upper right for? I didn't see any mention of them in the docs.
In another post/thread iirc Russ said the 5 solder pads are for programming purposes.
Interested in the SST. Subbing!
In one of the other FS Mini threads is a picture or two of the little fleece pouch my wife made for me (intended for FireFlys). The FS Mini, being narrower, fits in one easily. These were inspired by the little protector that DinoChutes made for AltimeterOne/Two/Three. I see they now also have pouches for FireFly and Pnut.
I wouldn’t do open weave....you want to protect the thing from ejection gases if you’re hanging it in with the parachute and such. It only needs a VERY tiny bit of air passage to do its thing - look at the size of the opening on the pressure sensor.
In a dedicated payload section I just use thin sheet foam or even recovery wadding to sort of cushion small altimeters - using enough to keep it from rattling around but not so much as to choke it from the static ports.
Yes - GND, SWDIO, SWDCLK, DFU select, & VDD. 100mil spacing for pogo pins or you can solder to the pads.
I see your point, and Russ's, although I was well satisfied with my Telemetrum, which does both dual deploy and GPS. Biggest advantage is that only one battery is needed.
I like the idea of keeping deployment and tracking functions on separate devices.
Tracker mounting in the nose and deployment control in an AV bay.
These all seem like they're going to be fantastic. I do have one request though. If possible, could you make the mounting holes symmetric for the Sport deployment altimeter? To save space, I like to mount redundant altimeters on opposite sides of the sled from one another and reuse the same holes. I've included pictures of a stratologger mounting setup to show what I'm talking about.
What I would most like to see in terms of a new product would be an improvement on the Jolly Logic Chute Release. Smaller and thinner to fit in a BT-50. Lighter. USB connection to set the altitude to exactly what you want. Cheaper - We own the Jolly Logic unit, but are afraid to fly it in high altitude rockets for risk of losing it and being out $130. Seems ironic since wasn't high altitude what it was intended for?
+1, that would be so cool.
How is everyone attaching their Minis to the rocket? Received my 2 new Minis today and they both connected to my Galaxy S9+ with no problem, but they did not come with the little pouch like my original one did. Are you making your own pouches or just using them with no pouch?
In non payload bay flights I’ve been wrapping them in a square of wadding with some masking tape. It’s fast and can’t beat the price.
