We’re publishing here a link to a youtube video. No involvement with the cited company, however, the video shows pretty clearly what is intended for instrumented flight.

Let’s say the video is motivational. Indeed we need to complete and polish our DIY air data system.

Boomerang Flight Dynamics https://www.basicairdata.eu/blog/2018/09/05/boomerang-flight-dynamics/ Wed, 05 Sep 2018 00:21:12 +0000 http://www.basicairdata.eu/?p=6736 You find here an (amazing!) detailed paper by John Vassberg “Boomerang Flight Dynamics” . That’s gold!

Anyway, we’ve downloaded and we are trying Boomlab. Finite element approach here.

3D printed parts printed by a third party service https://www.basicairdata.eu/blog/2018/07/24/3d-printed-parts-printed-by-a-third-party-service/ Tue, 24 Jul 2018 09:57:42 +0000 http://www.basicairdata.eu/?p=6789 One of our users uploaded Basicairdata STL files to Shapeways online 3D print service. So far the print results are good with this service. Shapeways service can be handy for the people that are not willing to use the STL files or need a fast print.

The STL files are available on the dedicated Github repository. The STL files are online browseable, see for example the fixation flange.
