Although we only managed to get one flight of our rocket in, we were very pleased with the opportunity to test all of our basic systems, from the deployment mechanism for our payload, to our motor retention system, to our SRAD avionics and beacon + GPS tracking. All of our sub-teams learned a lot from the journey and were excited that we got to return home with all of our components in-tact and recovered! We're looking forward to our next test launch when we return with various tweaks and improvements.
Some additional bonuses to the trip were getting to meet the Cal Poly team and watch their rocket have a beautiful flight, and getting a chance to chat with some local middle school students about our project! Lastly I'd like to make a large shout-out to Eric Melville for his continuous support as we progress through our project. He's been a wealth of guidance and information both on and off the launch site. Thank you, Eric!Lift Off!
