Telemetry.

So I have my rocket planned out for the most part. I have begun actually using a CAD program to model the rocket. But now comes the tricky part, telemetry. I supposed that this rocket is small enough to not require a telemetry system, but that really isn’t the point now is it?

The goal is to develop a rapidly produced rocket with the frame constructed out of parts built with my 3D printer. Is it not logical to develop the telemetry system along with it?

Anyway, here is the list of parts likely to be used to make the telemetry system. . I shall begin printing parts this week to test the structure and accuracy of the design.

Your thoughts?

To build a rocket

"And the rockets red glare…." But really I am working on a rocket. Not just any simple rocket kit you buy and build, I am designing and building my own rocket. The goal: To build a high powered rocket designed by me and printed by my home made 3D Printer. I have begun work on this, I have begun relearning rocket science. Early simulations show that the rocket should be able to reach about a mile high.

Current issues that need to be solved/worked out: Strength, can it withstand the G-Force? Melting point, will the friction melt the plastic? Theoretical weight to actual weight How will I cut it up so that it can be printed on my machines small bed? How will I hold the motor in tight? Will the tolerances be enough to keep the motor tight without preventing it from being inserted

That’s it for now, more designs and pictures to come soon.
