Re: A half complete network of Iridium satellites...

I think the problem with the feed dropping out on landing is because of the massive vibrations from the engine(s). I'm sure they could add a lot more dampening, but it's probably not worth it as they can probably pull the local camera storage to vote the footage. I agree that it's a bit annoying/disappointing for is though.

I did notice that the camera on the Block 5 first stage was a lot less secure than on previous versions. It was vibrating badly when ever the RCS was fired.
