So before I piss off anyone else in the 2018 NCAA Football thread I figured it's time for some more updates as work is progressing. The past few days are rather significant in the project process since I have finally settled on how I want to incorporate and protect the rather sensitive deployment electronics. Sooooo here we go:

- First photo - this is what is pretty much the completed eletronics sled. The end on the left side is glued into the coupler.

- Second photo - to protect all that, the sled slides into this tube with the and that fancy plate on the end is there for the screws to hold it in place and keep the sled from sliding out. This will also help protect the timer from getting dirt and other nastiness on it. The eyebolt on the end will help with giving something to grip to pull the ebay out of the tube.

So after this, it will be time to start gluing the lower basket to the center assembly. After that, the upper spokes and chains need to be installed. BUT before I do any of that it's time to go to the hardware store and buy some more materials...

HOLY TIME CRUNCH

Thought I had another week to finish this thingy...Next launch is a week from yesterday. EEK

Get ready to see lots of updates. Need to glue the lower basket and upper spokes TODAY. And hopefully soon after that see some ground testing of the deployment system. In other words...watch me scare the piss out of my neighbors lol.
