Up-Goer Status Update #1

Up-Goer is finally coming together and we have some updates.

  • We have a launch date set for May 16.
  • A new recovery system is being tested on this launch, aiming to make proper chute deployment more reliable.
  • A prototype flight computer will fly to collect accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and GPS data.
  • Performance of this flight will be compared with our Simulink Dynamics model, and the model adjusted accordingly.

Expect some more pictures to be posted in the coming weeks.
