~1200 g for box, payload, reflector, 600 g HAS balloon
Nikon coolpix 12 mega pixel camera - set interval 30 seconds

Recorded 4k video, Captured 170,138 rows of telemetry data

All instruments performed nominally with the exception of orientation. Orientation experienced gyroscopic drift and required alignment.

Final video render & data: Jason Cook - After my day job, I spent over 90 late night hours experimenting to process the data, render this monstrosity, and align the data with the video. It's the most complex and exciting video I have ever made.

Coming soon: Links to photos and data.
