UP-GOER I Construction Begins

Up-GOER I Ejection SystemUP GOER I will be our new test bed rocket for experimental systems. We just began construction and expect it to be finished in two weeks. The configuration we will fly in June will test a new recovery system with a side ejected parachute, along with an active guidance system. Both will be integral components to SkyGuard. In this configuration we expect it to reach a modest 8,000ft.

Edit: The launch has been postponed until our organization has been unsuspended.    upgoSpecifications
