Notes and Details

First flight of the Badger1 flight computer breaking the UK altitude record (since beaten by our Nova 7 flight and then Robert Harrison's Icarus II). Flight was successful and telemetry was maintained throughout. A problem with the onboard temperature sensor prevented any valid temperature data being logged.
