It flew ! For 50 feet off ground. Premature rope cut ! Dang....getting closer
Moment of ground release.
Next Friday...8-10-12...same time ...same place...another launch !
Congrats Earl! :)
Keep up the good work... one step at a time, regardless of how small each step is. ;-) Like Monroe, I'd be interested in hearing the results of a root cause analysis.
Good luck next week!
hope next friday goes good.
Arduino cut down CPU reset several times. I am triggering the hex-fet cut down nichrome wire off the red led d13 on the FIO Arduino. When it resets, the red led flashes 3 times then goes into the timer mode. During the 3 flashes, it is heating the wire. Continuous resets, flashing of the led, heat the wire enough to melt the rope.
Next flight, we trigger the hex-fet from another digital output like D12 that does not go high during reset.
That's my story.....and I'm stickin to it !
Thanks all !
The guy with the Red X8 is me...Earl
The boy in the B/G is Jean-Luc, my son. He will be 21 on 8-19-12
one shows the cut down rope and nichrome wire.
A little more detail on cut-down
Earl you look Like the guy behind the fence on "tool time " and just as knowledgeable also. Good luck next week!
Sorry to hear, do you know what was causing the adruino to reset
