New probe is very consistent with existing ones

Today I did a flight with one of our new probes. Compare the "new" one (top) with the "old" one (bottom) here:

You can see that the new one has a bit of a longer static tube, but is otherwise quite similar to the old one. The readings are super consistent with what we had before. This graph shows the data from the old probe in two separate experiments, versus the new probe:

So basically, anyone can build a probe according to our specs with their 3D printer and some electronic muckery, plop it on their plane, and without any additional messing around, get consistent results. This is HUGE. :)

The next step is calibration, of course. More on that soon.
