make an electronic, tilt activated latching parachute ejection system for model rockets from just a few simple components.Finished Product:
Here is a list of the parts you will need: -Soldering iron -Solder -Thyristor -2 different coloured standard LEDs -2 100 ohm resistors -2 330 ohm resistors -1 ...
Here is a schematic of the circuit. You could etch your own PCB following the schematic, or modify it sligtly for stripboard (I did) I mangaged to fit ...
Now all you have to do is put it together. I would suggest starting with the resistors, then the thyristor, then the battery clip, and finally the LEDs. ...
When its done, you should have something that looks and operates like this:
