N20 Name: N20
Type: Hercules A1
Motor: K2000
Launch: NLD11, ASK 't Harde, 7 April 2000

The faulty IA-X96 Cambridge Accelerometer was replaced by the R-DAS flight computer of AED Electronics, which is based on the same plans as the N8's electronics, but is further developed and more advanced. The N20's flight was a success, but the N20 pointed to the wind far more than expected. Also the K2000 rocket motor seemed not to have the thrust is was thought to have. It landed virtually unscratched. The N20 had flown earlier as the N18 and N19.
