The Most Versatile Event Controller for Rocketry
At this time, Defy Gravity no longer carries Control.
The exact same device will continue to be produced by the exact same people that have always made them. The only thing to change about the device itself is the name, now called Mission Control. Please contact RocketMotion for availability of new units and for support of existing units.
Control is what all other
onboard electronic devices wish they could be.
Basically, Control is a barometric and accelerometric based altimeter like many others.
But what sets Control apart is its functionality.
Control has twice as many output channels as the average device, is able to power any of these - either latched or pulsed - based on several different flight events, and at a timed delay from zero to two minutes from any of these events.
Control can even base an event on its own events.
Use the events as safety features and save your project.
Control is the only device on the market that can detect touchdown.
Control is fully programmable and records your flight data in high resolution.
