Instead of starting from scratch we decided to modify the Ascender rib from last week. We found the error and have made eight extensions to bring it to the correct size. A lot of Saturday was spent pulling seams, an eighteen foot ellipse all double seams at the perimeter and triple seamed at the joints has a LOT of seams. With that accomplished we’re started sewing back together again. Sometimes….

The control servo was mounted on the reel down system and the next round of testing should start this week.

On the rocket balloon launch box the bridal mount was installed. This is the structural backbone that gets attached to the balloon.

Please feel free to discuss this topic further in the forum or chat…
