Correct, that's a modular nc av bay system I designed. Basically anything that I can fit a bt-55 into will hold my eggfinder mini/Quantum combo. Just drop it in and screw on the retainer (I turned down to OD to fit the bt). It also allows for shorter/lighter batteries due to the fact that the sled itself is two separate pieces(can be shortened with a different tail section). I chose a 800Mah Lipo due to the fact it has to handle both the Mini and WiFi on the Quantum. They both survived and I will post data from the Quantum.I will post ground flight video soon, but the onboard 808 #16 is still lost "somewhere" near the pad @ Bong since that's pretty much where I found the rest of the parts.Looks like that Estes retainer is to hold the tail of that sled into the nose.
Well, it seems I never documented the actual weight in my data base but I'm simulating it with 13.5 ounces so I must have weighed it at some point.How is it built and how much does it weigh?
Leo: You do some of the nicest/cleanest work I've seen. Realistically @ $14 with a 40 percent discount at Hobby Lobby the Star Orbiter just cannot be beat. I've bought more than one, but only actually built one, the others ended up being used for "parts". Now that I managed to destroy mine I must get another.They fly absolutely Beautifully on BP motors. An E16 seems to be the "sweet" spot. Being in Germany, I have no idea what such things cost you but here it's just downright cheap...Love it!
You weren't kidding about spikey data were you...You need to download the detail. You'll get some interesting insight into what a shread look like to an altimeter... you're likely to see some very spikey data.
It looks like the failsafe kicked in and tried to deploy the parachute right after apogee, probably because it didn't see that your drogue was doing any good. That's understandable since by that time you already were in pieces. You have a really low velocity value for the failsafe, the default (if you enable it) is 100 ft/sec for 1 sec. 50 ft/sec is about the velocity that your drogue should be hitting.
