Last components needed for the drop test

Hej! As you might have noticed tomorrow we are going to perform the Drop tests using an inflatable balloon that will help us to drop for the FFU (Free Falling Unit) from approximatively 500 meters.

The two prototypes of FFU are almost ready. Let me introduce you the last components manufactured: the Battery Cage and the Thermal Cutter.

The Battery Cage as you can imagine is a simple cage that will keep the battery attached to to Bottom PCB.

The Thermal Cutter is a small device that will cut a small wire that will deploy the parachute.

Here you can see the Thermal Cutter in action, this was the very first test performed.

Here you can see other pictures of the components and how we manufactured them.
