Probe on a stick

Given the issues with the PCBs, I'm building a really simple "probe on a stick" that I can use to take data and de-risk other portions of the project. I don't think this is a valid flight test article but at least it can allow me to try road tests at various angles and see what results I get, and experiment with digital filtering of my signals.

On some level, the road tests did their job -- they acted as enough of a shakeout of the probe that they uncovered underlying reliability problems without the expense of flight testing. But it sure is a bitter pill to swallow....

I get exactly 5 minutes of crying in the corner ... but then I must press onward regardless.
