The September / October issue of Sport Rocketry contained a article on making a Modular Avionics Bay (pg 35). The author used components by three small speciality companies that may prove useful in future high powered rockets:

  • Rocket Junkies ( machined the metal bulkheads (custom) and provided the ejection charge wells (off-the-shelf) for the drogue parachute.
  • Tinder Rocketry ( provided the CO2 ejection system for the main chute. CO2 prevents burning of the main chute.
  • LabRat Rocketry ( provided the “remove prior to launch” pull switches that energise the electronics.
