A picture of the hardware brought back by the team. The gentleman in the picture is Matt Brubaker of Propshop Hobbies in Warren Michigan. Though he cannot even claim his contributions to a Canadian team he has for as many years as I have been involved contributed generously towards each year’s team. Thanks again Matt.

They had to adjust the max breaking each weight change so the brakes would roll instead of locking up. Landing was with full brakes on. Stops were very quick and sudden.

Second picture is the hall effect sensor and 10 magnets on the recording disk that divides the wheel rotation by ten. One rotation equals one foot.
Interesting work these brakes ^^ I was wondering something, you said that sometimes it was recording distance of 2ft but then what is wrong with it ? You would deliver a very short landing distance and get more points I guess no ?
