|Apogee Aspire on F26J (2011-11-20) |
My Aspire again, my first rocket, on an Aerotech F26J. I fiberglassed the fins on, other than that stock build.
|Apogee Aspire on F40W (2011-11-20) |
My first foray into rocketry, second flight. Apogee Aspire kit, no electronics (because of high risk of loss of rocket due to extreme altitude and small size). Aerotech F40W; est. altitude=3800ft, v_max=~550mph.
|JAMROC on an Aerotech I284W-10 (2011-12-31) |
The 10 second delay was too short, you can see the chute whip down the rocket. It zippered the piston about an inch and popped a few shroud lines.
|PML Phobos LOKI on H73J (2011-11-20) |
My E80 rocket Maiden Flight! Aerotech H73. All of the flights of LOKI in this form (green and red, labeled as E80 flights) had the following electronics: Sparkfun datalogger Absolute pressure sensor Differential pressure sensors in Pito tubes (2) High-g axial accelerometer 3 instrument amps; 4+ op-amps, voltage regulators, ALL OF THE .1uF CAPS EVER MADE (over 24).
|PML Phobos on H242T (2011-11-20) |
My E80 rocket on it's second-to-last flight in this form. Strong, strong winds. Aerotech H242T. At the end you can see us chasing it as it gets dragged away.
