Default Project ALTDuino

Everyone,

I've been working hard on this project for several months (since February).

The ALTDuino is a small homemade dual deploy altimeter.

I've documented the project here: www.ALTDuino.de

Comments on the website are welcomed.

I am dreadfully sorry you have to make another...

Very nice work on the altimeter! You could market it as a kit that we could solder together like old school !

Very impressive indeed.

This is my first exposure to the Sparkfun Pro Mini. I have been dabbling with the AVR using this: http://www.xgamestation.com/view_product.php?id=46 but it is too big to be practical as flight hardware.

Thanks Bill.

Yes, it's a bit unpractical for model rocketry.



I've now incorporated a "Compare" function into the UI software. It is now possible to compare 2 flight profiles.

I built a rocket for my altimeter:



It was one of those builds that was a pain but it turned out nice nonetheless.
