1. Flight computer: The robust flight computer records data like GPS coordinates, wind speed, altitude, pressure, and temperature, etc. to a micro SD card for post-mission analysis. These computers can work up to 60,000 to 260,000 feet.
2. Flight frame: The frame is designed to be strong and light, forming a rugged backbone to which every flight hardware is attached. It’s uniquely designed, making it quite a stable platform for acquiring good footage from the space edge.
3. Weather balloons: These balloons ensure that every record-breaking altitude is reached. You can select a weather balloon of any size when buying this kit. Often, people buy a 350g weather balloon. For people who want to break the 100,000 feet mark, they’ll need a 600g weather balloon. If you’re launching it for the first time, our recommendation is to not go with the 1200g weather balloon.
4. Camera mount: It fastens any camera securely.
5. Near space parachute: These parachutes are specifically designed for near-space flights.
6. Weather balloon inflator: It has a built-in gas filter and gas pressure regulator to ensure you’re filling your balloon with pure helium gas only.
7. Satellite tracker: It is a reliable and robust tracking solution for flights that take place on high altitudes. This hardware facilitates direct communication, allowing you to track your payload just about anywhere on the planet.
