New features included in this release:
- Additional information is now being recorded and downlinked for multi-stage flights. This includes staging delay, burn time and maximum acceleration for each stage. Also altitude and velocity at ignition and at burn-out for each stage.
- Additional data is now being recorded and downlinked for the apogee deployment event. This includes how early or late the deployment charge fired. Also the vertical and horizontal velocity present when it fired.
- Additional data is now being recorded and downlinked for the main parachute deployment event. This includes the time, altitude and vertical velocity present when the main parachute deployment charge fired.
- Flight data memory allocations have been adjusted in order to make sure enough memory is available to record the entire descent phase even on very high altitude flights above 150K feet. Previously, a flight that took more than 141.78 seconds (2.36 minutes) to reach apogee would completely consume all available storage memory. There was none left to record the descent phase! That has been fixed.
- Implemented a new "shred" detection criteria based on data from several flights made in 2015. It is now much more likely to detect a shred when it happens. Consequently, it will now trigger the necessary adjustments to the algorithms providing flight commentary.
- Fixed a bug in the flight simulator that caused inaccurate longitude values to be calculated.
- Other bug fixes and improvements.
