National Rocketry Championship Winners 2017-18

Another team has taken glory to become the winners of the UKSEDS National Rocketry Championships 2017-18.

Drum roll, please.

Our Champions for this year are UWEBAR our branch from the University of the West of England. We loved their 3D printed fin can with removable fins and custom boattail and interesting parachute mounting method. In addition, they 3D printed a nose cone which housed their avionics which included a barometer and GPS which measured altitude separately and were both verified as accurate using a standard flight altimeter. Flying to an altitude of 539m with a Cesaroni 107G83-14A ‘Blue Streak’ motor.
