Description

Thank you Deepam, Tim, and Freddy for excellent pictures, I really appreciate it, especially since I didn't film from ground video like I usually do.

Video text:

Test was completed using experimental software written for communication with GoTenna Mesh transmitter for live telemetry data. The communication of Phone / GoTenna is Bluetooth. The phone was installed inside the electronics bay. The GoTenna was in the nosecone. While it will be a bit before I can release a compatible version of Insane Rockets App using this technology, the test was a complete success. Live telemetry data was received during the entire flight.

Test code was successful that places the app in hibernation when the rocket is being prepped. This is important for hot summer days as it greatly reduces heat generated. In addition, battery life is greatly extended.

Forth successful test using the Insane Rockets App firing solid state relays causing Dual Deployment. A Numato USB 2 Channel Solid State Relay was connected to the phone. Logic from the Insane Rockets App informed the relay when to fire the charges. The charges were powered and fired by a separate 9V alkaline battery.
