Im looking for some electronics.. at this point.. anything..

Need altimeters, a big red bee (assuming i can pair with hand held base station)

Anything you are not using, please think about donating/selling them to me. Ive purchased alot of stuff from here and today they all got taken out in one shot.

So I have zero electronics to find/track or to acually see my data.

Again. Im appreciative of anything!

Thank you
Tom

Is this the result of an angry wife or girlfriend? I can’t fathom anybody else doing this. Women can be incredibly mindless and cruel when they’re mad.

There are two kinds of rocketeers - those who have done that, and those who will do that. Ballistic recovery is no fun.

The altimeters were in the nose. Motor ejection blew the tube apart
It would appear that motor ejection didn’t blow the tube apart. If it had it would have most likely descended slower than it did. Maybe it blew a small hole in the tube? How easily did the nosecone slide in and out of the airframe?
So, you didn’t have the RRC3 configured to do any kind of deployment? You relied entirely on motor deployment?
Had you flown the rocket before or better yet ground tested it?

The laundry and chute was jammed into the top of booster section .

I assume at apogee, charge blew, wiping out the tube, while Kevlar kept both peices "together"

Nose cone traveled down first carrying the fin can trailing behind it..

How easily did the nosecone slide in and out of the airframe?

Very easy!!

So, you didn’t have the RRC3 configured to do any kind of deployment? You relied entirely on motor deployment? Yes, and motor deployment works for high level and a jolly logic chute release set at 800 feet.
Had you flown the rocket before or better yet ground tested it?

Yes, certified my L2 on that, and flew it many times flawlessly. Ground tested for 1 year before L-2 attempt.

I have an old PerfectFlite MAWD that I'm willing to part ways with. Still works, still have the manual. $50. Let me know if interested.
