Amature Rocketry

Our first 2.2 oz motor. Also our first test with my homemade data acquisition system and at Otway. It is arduino based connected to a in-expensive load cell. Beats the heck out of reading the scale one frame at a time. See the test plan for a more detailed desc of the thrust measurement rig.

Test Plan

A test plan is a good idea. Can hand it to anyone with questions and eliminate a lot of trouble and concern.

Also, note the plywood, placed to protect against most unfortunate incidents.
