Flight #28 - 2015c
The third flight for Project: Traveler in 2015 has been rescheduled for Monday May 25rd in Hutchinson, KS. This flight will be a personal altitude record attempt and will consist of just a bare-minimum of one APRS transmitter and a streamer recovery.
The APRS tracker will be the brand new ArduinoTrack design, based on the Ublox Max M8Q GPS engine and the latest version 1.10 PCB. No other cameras or equipment will be flown on this attempt.
The flight package will consist of the ArduinoTrack electronics and battery inside of a soft plastic bag. Bubble wrap packing will be used to protect the electronics. Given the very low weight of the flight string, a "streamer" will be used instead of a parachute. For the streamer material, we will be using a light weight plastic table cloth. The overall length of the flight string will be under 2 meters in length, from balloon to bottom of the streamer material. Most of that length will come from the streamer itself.
