Ha, no cheating! Too bad we don't have the time or money to do this though
because it would be a fun project. 100,000 feet is a pretty number. Maybe
when I get the Trajectory Optimizer working we can do an optimal mass
problem with it and see just how big it would have to be. Maybe with dart?
Anyway I wasn't suggesting we go for it just wanted to know what people
thought about it so I don't sound stupid tomorrow on the air.

I'm pretty sure the tracking loop is causing the GPS to lose lock.


Yes, as I remember it we agreed this was a problem. I have seen other people
suggest this as a likely problem over 4 g's and fixable with GPS/INS type
solutions.

>From what I gathered in the list this is a competition to get people working
on reasonable goals. I think they're tired of seeing pie-in-the-sky plans
that don't get off the ground. Baby steps. Just get to 100,000 feet without
blowing anything up and record GPS (proof of not being an idiot about flight
electronics) and recover safely then share what you did with the world.
Sounds pretty great actually.
