Thanks everyone! Glad everyone see's the humor in it - I know I'm having fun with it lol!
@electricman58: GPS unit on the As-droid-naut!! Got me to within 10 feet or so - it was pretty cool (first time I used GPS with the flights).
Flew her (Android1) again this past weekend - crushed my previous telemetry! 1438' @ 226 mph experiencing 13.3g's!
Overall it was the best launch yet WOOT
Pix & Telemetry: ANDRAC-mission-gallery - ANDRAC (Click on "Encore Flight"). Got some amazing (lucky) shots of the Android (As-droid-naut) ejecting @ 1438'. Here is my favorite:
(the nose cone is trailing the rocket now, because of the ejection event IE: nose cone pops off to allow chutes and As-droid-naut ejection)

Hey all ... for those of you interested I have started building the next gen rocket for the ANDRAC missions. After careful consideration concerning possible conflicts with a rumored (yet unannounced) Android device I am assigning the name "NEXUS.X" for the next build and round of missions.
In past missions, the As-droid-naut had a mini DVR attached to him that recorded the launch with his POV. The data was collected after the As-droid-naut was recovered and the video was then posted to the ANDRAC website:
The NEXUS.X mission goals are to launch the As-droid-naut AND a Samsung Galaxy Nexus that will stream the As-droid-naut POV LIVE via Google+ Hangout! The new rocket is much bigger and the thrust/power required is much more. A new ejection platform is also being designed to accommodate the new device.
Does anyone have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus they would like to donate to the mission? I know - let the laughter ensue ! It can obviously be in any shape as long as it is functional. Consider the donation permanent as it will be modified slightly for the missions and I cannot guarantee it's safe return. I can guarantee it WILL be used ONLY for ANDRAC missions, I will mention you as a sponsor, and you will receive an ANDRAC T-shirt for your troubles .
Please PM me if you have questions or are interested in donating to the cause Thanks!!
