Cloud2 is my second attempt at a photographic flight. Basically, it’s similar to my first flight but with smaller and lighter GPS receiver, GPS antenna and flight computer. The container is much more compact than before, and is designed for much quicker assembly before launch.
A piece of coax connects the antenna and ground plane to the transmitter inside. The smaller container doesn’t have space for the full ground plane, so I’m using a wire plane with the wires extending outside the box.
Here’s the main compartment, with holes for the camera, video, GPS tracker and batteries:
and now with those things inserted:
Finally, here’s the container with the lid. That will soon have the GPS antenna, buzzer and other devices added,
