N8 Name: N8
Type: Midget B
Motor: K600
Launch: WWLC 1993, Bourges, 29 August 1993

The N8 was our first rocket, which had an onboard computer. This computer was based on the 80C552 processor and was designed by one of our members. It could measure acceleration, rotation, onboard temperature and could trigger the separation of the parachute hatch. A month earlier the N8 had flown as the N4 and was repaired and rebuild for the Bourges launch. The main difference was that the N8 was longer to accommodate more electronics. The flight was a success and the N8 rotated around its vertical axis once each 8 seconds.
