Bought a CNC machining center to start making aluminum/SS Parts for 2021. No particular product announcements yet, but I have a very long list of things in development which I just couldn't print out of plasticDid I miss what the "big Thing" was? I've purchased (& love) the fly away rail guides. But what did you make?
I had a theory of using something like this to get a perfect TARC altitude score every time. Then I realized that the time stops when any part of the rocket touches the ground, so the time score would be awful.Haha,
A nosecone that has a spool of very thin, very strong string / line. So, you can record your altitude as well as easily locate it! (No need for messy electronics, programming, paring with Bluetooth, etc..)
You tie one end of this string to the launch pad, then fire off said rocket as per normal procedures. As it ascends, the string is payed out. You then just fish along the string to locate your downed rocket, and the length payed out determines it's altitude..
Note: can also be used to dislodge said rocket from those evil trees!
