Callipygous Posted October 2, 2012 Share Posted October 2, 2012 (edited) Greetings gents! Long time no see. My friend and I have a project in mind that I'm hoping you guys could offer some insight/advice on. My hope is to build a small transmitter that can be fired either from a spudgun, or in a model rocket, and another device that will ping it, so I can launch it off into some local park, and then triangulate its location and go find it. I know how to build a spudgun that will launch a potato core somewhere around the half mile mark. I have some experience with model rockets, but not as much, and I'm not sure what kind of range they could give me. I'm also not sure how difficult it would be to put together the actual electronics, and in such a small size. If anyone knows a good resource for figuring that out I would appreciate it. I'm also looking for ideas on deploying a delayed parachute if I go with the spudgun method. Edited October 2, 2012 by Callipygous Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
