There are LOTS of reasons that the bird could have failed, in my viewpoint the BEST one is that the battery has some issues. Operating the vehicle in a thermal environment that it was not designed for would be a first guess, followed by some sort of "crib death" issue, and next comes parts connected wrong.
In any event the failure does not bode well for a successful sat deployment.
See if this makes it on the board. Robert G. Oler WB5MZO
