Hydra58 Major Progress!!

       So it has been a while since I have updated any of my projects on here but I can assure I am still working diligently on them. So far on the Hydra58 (clever name right? its a 58mm OD body tube) I have the GPS mounted in the new M229 style nosecone, the receiver case printed, and the folding fins are almost done. Also the only picture I had of the fin can assembles happened to be while I was in my car…

The nosecone doesn’t look very fancy as of yet but I can assure you that there is a fully equipped GPS tracking and apogee detection deployment computer in there as you can see in the picture on the right.

As of now the remaining major parts of this build are to finish up the AV bay with the backup computer, electronics switches, and batteries as well as wait for the motor mount tube to arrive so I can fully assemble the fins. After those two things I will be able to start the painting.
