We are a high school aerospace engineering class from Flagstaff, Arizona that includes only dedicated students and a well respected engineer as a teacher for the class.
Our plan is to use Free and Open Source Software and Open-Source Hardware to design, build, launch and recover a near-space balloon. Our goals include: 1. EVERY student obtains an amateur radio license, 2. 3D print our fuselage, 3. exceed 100,000' altitude, and 4. STABILIZED VIDEO!
We joined in order to gain engineering knowledge as well as compete hard and hopefully win the competition.
