You find an Estes Aries SST kit in that box and you will have my undivided attention....Unintentional rocketry while searching through old boxes for the non-metric yard sale. Found a bunch of Fliskits and ASP Micro-Maxx kits that I'll list on the forum when I have time. No market for those in Oz. Also a couple of Holverson Zoomies. I wonder what else is lurking...
Finally managed to get back to looking at my automatic antenna tracker. I had a lot of trouble with the telemetry off the GNSS receiver which should have been easy. The biggest problem was the radio set (3DR Sik radio system) had been set to use Error Correcting Code (ECC) but the Golay code packetises everything so all the individual lines of the GNSS NMEA strings were flowing together instead of nicely separated. So the AAT didn't recognise the GNSS data stream. Got that fixed by deleting the ECC and just going to straight data.
Please note there are a couple of errors in the design published. The ring is supposed to be BT80. The pods are supposed to be BT20, but it’ll come out ok if you build it with the BT50 as shown in POF. Let me know if you want to go with the BT20 pods; I’ll send you some additional info.Did some initial work on a couple LPR builds from the Apogee POF newsletters. All the body tubes are cut, spirals filled, and shot the primer on the "Shamrocket" from POF issue 534.
Also cut and filled tubes, cut and papered fins and primed the pods for the "Biohazard" from POF issue 543 (With a HUGE tip of the hat to Neil_W for both the great design and for sharing it!!).
Thanks. Once I saw that it was your design I went over your build thread for tips and techniques. I did fab the pods from BT20 and decided on a miter cut so I'm all good there. I didn't pick up the error in the POF plans regarding the BT80 ring though. I'll have to grab one.Please note there are a couple of errors in the design published. The ring is supposed to be BT80.
