Greg, yes thats it. Thanks. 

1) How did you thread the wires from the inside of the tube to the outside of 
the rocket where the electronics were for each flight? 
2) Also do you have details of the shunts you used? I have heard ppl recommend 
AGAINST shunts as something that under G load can open up. What do you think? 
Or did you mitigate that?

Hi Jeff:
   This might be too large to be directly relevant, but I've got quite a few 
pictures of my L3 project setup:
