The team prepared for a CMass launch in Amesbury MA this weekend. We were flying a 2" Arreaux kit on dual deployment recovery.
The e-bay was printed with the Makerbot Replicator 2X in the MIE Altra Innovation Makerspace. Thanks again to all the dedicated students who made this space a reality!
As we arrived at the beautiful Amesbury launch site, we were greeted with the crisp autumn air and the sound of rockets launching. We strode over the hills to rendezvous with our mentor.
Due to a battery issue with the altimeter, neither ejection charge fired. However, the backup charge on the engine provided body separation and the vehicle came down on its drogue parachute. The rocket was recovered intact after a somewhat hard landing. We plan to fly this rocket again in a few weeks at the next launch.
