TEST FLIGHT #2
On December 10th Into the Blue flew with the same size motor as test flight #1, but this time our active braking system was put to the test for the first time. The rocket flew to 5500m on test flight #1, and this flight we wanted the air-brakes to reduce this apogee down to 4700m. It achieved this goal perfectly and got within 20 meters of the target altitude. This is a huge milestone for the UC Aerospace team and the system will be continually improved upon to allow for pin-point accurate apogees to be achieved.
