    "Is this thing on?" ... tap tap ... seriously folks, from the silence you'd think I asked you for a $200 phone or something...

    Thank you, the GNEX donation was MUCH appreciated - you know who you are. The donator wished to remain anonymous. Next time you are in the Dallas area give me a shout out - drinks on me!!

    ANDRAC "Nexus.X" Mission Update:

    The Android community is fantastic! I reached out to the community for a donation (I needed a Galaxy Nexus for these missions - working) and a donator stepped up (wanting to remain anonymous)! again thank you VERY MUCH!


    The missions main goal was to stream live video over LTE during the launch via USTREAM, or a G+ Hangout via a Galaxy Nexus (thus the "Nexus.X" mission name). This is being tested shortly (I will be looking for folks to join and give their feedback).

    Now, with the recent acquisition of the GNEX device, and hooking up with a dev that likes the idea, I hope to actually stream the flight data/telemetry live over LTE as well. After-all the GNEX is PACKED with sensors including Orientation/Gyroscope, GPS, Barometric, Accelerometer, and Magnetic Field.

    LTE hasn't been tested at the speeds (and altitude) I expect to hit - so there will be some extensive testing prior to launching the actual rocket. I plan on launching the telemetry and GNEX on a controlled tethered helium balloon rig. WOOT!
    Cheers, Serpico

    A few updates, it's been a while since I've been on this board, sorry.

    The flight to put the GNEX up (ANDRAC "Nexus.X" Mission) is now back on since our rocket club got it's high power field back! I plan on getting my certification this upcoming Saturday which means I should be good to fly the GNEX on board a rocket in the next couple months.

    While waiting I decided to build a working model of my ANDRAC logo that will fly (hopefully ~ it's an oddroc) this weekend at the high power launch. Simulation sw says it will fly up to 600 ft. on a mid power motor, which is a pretty low altitude. Because of the shape and size of the project I had to add significant weight in the head. Just need to put the "ANDRAC" sticker on the front and it's done:

    Big launch day tomorrow (Saturday). Flying the ANDRAC logo rocket and going for my Level 1 Certification (High power cert) with this LOC IV rocket. This will eventually become my "NEXUS.X" rocket (hence the color scheme) that will carry a Galaxy Nexus (VZW), eject it at about 2500' and stream the descent video live via Hangouts. At least that is the plan.

    Here is the launch lineup:

    Well, what can I say ~ it didn't go well for the ANDRAC Logo Rocket. Looks like my launch lugs were too far forward causing the rocket to canter just after ignition. The launch rod then whipped and it went very wrong from there:





    However; I DID get my Level 1 Certification, so now I can move forward on the NEXUS.X GNEX Launch:
