Finally the first advertised Rockoon flight will be next month in November! Waiting on the airframe from U.S. Rockets! Testing BPN for ignition and coating the core with it.

It's taking longer than I want it too to build out and test these little rockets there a lot of electronics at stake. There a lot of higher level programing to do too. It's a pain in the butt. Looks good though so far we still need the ground test to go off well.

Well, I burned out our tracker during testing it for the rockoon I'll get it back repaired soon from Big Red Bee and we will go for another attempt at launching it. I have to do a low altitude launch first so Adrian can recalibrate the flight computer.
