Dave already posted the link to the North Texas Near Space 4 mission:

Monroe, when you get your new web site up it will be great to see all the stuff that you are doing.

Rick


Ah, Not referring to that one. I've seen that video before. Monroe did an RC drop test using his new optical tracker rig that "apparently" had lots of desirable things happen such as maintaining FPV control for the complete drop. But I've only seen a few photos not the video. It might have been the same plane that the NTNS guys used not sure.

This one will be dropped from 100kft at the team gathering in April. The whole gang will be here. Chris and Larry too, lots to do before then.

I thought my last few posts were very positive. I'm still puzzled why you deleted them. You must have read something into them that wasn't there. Anyhow, as I said in one of my deleted post, I'm looking forward to seeing the X11F fly. I have full confidence that you can do it by April.

The point is I've been working on this project for 5 years. We HAVE helped many other teams in that time. Team Prometheus has done a lot of good works with Ardusat, Condor, NTNS, Robotrizing, Sol-X ect... I'm not the only person on the team here and I'm sure as hell tired of having my hard work and determination that keeps this team going doing and helping others put down.

I have had a lot to do with that for sure.

Our team has done more for the new space effort in real life than MANY others have. I'm not going to take any more crap at all. As I've said address the team if you wish!

The new website is being built that will detail our works mine and the teams individual efforts as well.

Monroe

If you have a history of being crappy to me yeah you might get your post deleted. As I see fit.

Here are some shots from the FPV mission Elliot spoke of. Before NTNS this is live video not recorded. This is also a Skyfun and not a Stinger (different plane)

The lat/lon coordinates are for Raleigh, North Carolina. Is that correct?

Yes, this flight was done by teammate John Baker near Raleigh. I update the fb page way more often than here. The flight was on May 29th https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =1&theater

Joe Latrell is our teams new Government liaison. He has an appointment with the FAA to discuss the future plans for Team Prometheus over the next few years.

We will be discussing any snags we run into.

Armadillo had a lot of write ups about making progress with the FAA, might be worth a read
