• Rocket Telemetry

    I wanted to build a small data logging module for model rcketry. This was done in part to learn the Eagle PCB CAD tool and partially to creat a new 'universal' controller for my use.

February 21, 2013 - I finished and ordered rev 0 of the rocket telemetry board tonight. I added a gyro also even though I expect it to be difficult to solder down.

February 06, 2013 - Finished a first draft of the Rocket Telemetry board. I am impressed by the auto-route abilities of Eagle. Still need to manual route in part but still nice.

January 27, 2013 - I have not spent anytime on R2, but I have been working on some other little side projects. Currently, I'm working on a rocket telemetry package for putting into Estes brand Alpha III rockets. This is a project for the local IEEE student chapter, but also for my own amusement. Attached is an image of the CAD model of the nose cone. This will be used to check the dimensions of the new board.
