G8ST Rocket Motor Test Flight

FLIGHT DATA: A quick note: While the motor did melt the PLA tube holding it, the rest of the TVC assembly(outer/inner gimbal, servos, linkages) were unaffected. Since the heat of the motor was so intense, it's unlikely we'll be able to mitigate it using more liners than were already there. The same goes for using most other plastic FDM materials. For now, we'll probably cut the burn time down a bit and make sure users have access to extra motor mount tubes, should one of them melt. The motor tubes are incredibly easy to manufacture and replace, and the priority right now is ensuring Signal's software and UX are top notch. For more info:
