Hi Folks,
Just to let you know that I have now finished my new Hybrid Launch controller
So I think we are just about ready for a few static ground tests before the free flight tests 🙂

The New controller includes the following functionality:

A. Base Unit (Launch Site)
– Power Isolation Switch/ 1 x LED Indicator
– 3 Relay Drives / 3 x LED Indicators
– 3 Channel control = FILL NOX/ DUMP NOX / LAUNCH

B. Hand Control Unit (Remote Site)
– Safety Key (Isolation)
– Power On/Off Switch / 1 x LED Indicator
– Fill Switch/ 1 x LED Indicator
– Dump Switch/ 1 x LED Indicator
– Pre Fire Saftey Switch/ 1 x LED Indicator/ Warning Sounder
– Launch Push Switch/ 1 x LED Indicator

The two units are connected using a 45m control cable for safety
Anyway it all seems to work and is ready for testing Cool

Best Regards

As well as the controller that Steve has designed and made for the club – which has now been fully test and works perfectly.
Steve has made a second controller, which although remains the property of Steve/Matt, will be made available for use at launches.
