Achieving an altitude of 42895 m (140,732ft), Random Aerospace is the winner of the “Highest Altitude” prize for GSBC 2015. The team flew a sub 50g payload on a hydrogen filled 1600g Hwoyee balloon, combining a homemade UKHAS style radio tracker with a uBlox7C GPS module and a modified “808” #18 keyring camera for the lightest payload in the GSBC. Flying again just two days later, the team achieved an altitude of 42318m (138839ft). Both flights were performed in the UK, where Random Aerospace also runs an online store for HAB components for customers worldwide. Congratulations to Random Aerospace for reaching the highest altitude of any team in the history of the GSBC.
