Description

On the field, the second computer turned on fine and worked normal. However when I powered up the main computer, it failed and I got a full ejection of drogue and main charges for that computer. I'm glad nothing landed on my head or worse. I'll swap both computers out as they did hit an asphalt road. I'm still glad the iPhone is fine(from CATO - and no damage of course to it from this) - but I lost another launch day.

Update: The 5 watt radio was bleeding through the wires and creating RF noise in the bay. I have redesigned the bay since and used shielded wiring. All works perfectly now.
