A dummy for our CanSat

Today we finished our dummy required for the drop test. This test is part of the inspection that our CanSat has to go through on the 2 launch day.

here the sideview
The drop test is made to check whether our CanSats meet the specified sink rate. For this test it is important that the dimensions and the weight, as well as the parachute fastening, are exactly the same.
Therefore the satellite will be brought to a height of 50 m by a drone and from there it will be dropped.
Our sink rate should be around 8 m/s (for the competition is a sink rate between 8 m/s  and 11 m/s recommend) sothat we should take good pictures.
