"JvcB, any updates on building a guided recovery system for high power rockets? I've recently got into HPR and really would like to incorporate a return-to-launch guidance system into the 2nd stage main chute."

"One curious thing, I've worked out the reverse servo's etc in the airframe tester. However when I power up (in the house), switch to stabilization mode, hold the stick 2sec in the corner and remove the plug the elavator goes instant up. It…"

What's new on the Ublox GPS, is DIYdrones taking up the Ublox GPS in store together with the antenna? Or should we wait untill sparkfun has them back in stock?



I also read somewhere that Jordi is making some kind of gizmo adapter in a way that non-pros' can use the Ublox as well without the fiddly soldering job? Not that it will be a big… Continue

For reference and typical for 2 stage recovery.



I launch rockets in The Netherlands and as a side project I want the rocket to be recovered by a steerable parachute and returned to a fixed waypoint. Preferable this waypoint would be right next to the launch pad. Basically the return-to-launch (RTL) feature… Continue
