I have norad pro kit, but no chance for certification in Poland, I want order aerotech G80-7T.
what you think about it? I want use 29/38 mma-2 adapter,
in the nose cone installing my old apm 2.6 with gps and radio modem 433mhz for live telemetry.
if its possible making deployment near transition tube.

Seems like a good plan to me. Remember to compensate for the extra weight when you add more electronics and other payload.
