Re: Arduino Cubesat (satellite) project

By popular request- here is the link to the files on my GitHub. https://github.com/MKme/Arduino-Satellite

Some solar panels just arrived so I may pick this project back up. I was hoping to laser cut a new frame but I cant seem to find a decent 1U laser template or SVG files. Still looking though.
