Buy a chassis structure

Postby mersault » Tue Oct 12, 2010 12:31 pm

Hello

this is my first post !..

I'm thinking of making a cubesat. I saw the pricelist in the pumpkin's website but I have a question.
I want to buy only the CHASSIS PART, but I don't now what parts are essential, I mean, I know that I have to buy

- 710-00296 Cover plate
- 703-00289 Chassis skeletonized
- 710-00294 Base plate
- Remove before flight bracket kit

Now, my questions are:

With those parts is enough to have a basic cubesat?
Those parts includes a kill switch?
Will I have to buy fasteners for the differents PCBs (comm, EPS, On-board Computer, payloads)?
What other things are essential?

Thank you for all.

Bye !.

To your questions:

0. You don't need the RBF Kit.

1. Yes.

2. Yes

3. You can use 15mmm M/F hex threaded standoffs (available at Digi-Key, for instance) to stack the modules within the Kit.

4. For only chassis parts, that is enough.

Be sure to see http://www.cubesatkit.com/docs/cubesatk ... mchart.pdf .
