Major set back.

Well things were going well and the Maxi Swift tests were coming along fine. I even had some high altitude pictures for the blog. We don't do FPV but we were setting the system up to run a wireless on the end of one wing and a HD camera on the other wing. We had an OSD connected to the wireless to see what we were doing and let Atto fly the Maxi. The flight went well but after landing and upon looking at the HD camera video it was just a whole bunch of noise. I tried a video on the ground…

A Very Happy Camper...

Well even though I'm still working with an older 1.8V Atto we decided to do a maiden on our new MAXI SWIFT, (pictures to come). we just did a very basic setup with just the regular RC electronics and the Atto, nothing else was added as all we wanted to see was how well it flew.

1 40 amp plush BESC

1 .15 1300kva motor

1 9/6 prop

If you don't succeed at first try, try, and try again.

I started this project in 2003 with the "great idea" of getting a O powered High Powered Rocket above 46,000 feet. O powered is 40960N total impulse and 46,000 feet is the record for an O powered flight. the O powered motor is the maximum allowed in Canada as a HP rocket.

My Group and I designed and built and peroxide motor which puts out a little more than 450 lbs of thrust, about 2100N. We are able to throttle the motor between full thrust and quarter thrust…
