I have an electromagnet-based SPDT relay that I am considering using inside a model rocket. It is estimated to experience between 10-20G of acceleration.
Should I worry about the acceleration overpowering the electromagnet? I could use a solid-state relay, but I don't have any handy and would have to wait for shipping.
For context, I am using the relay to discharge capacitors (in parallel) into an electric match to set off a second-stage motor. An Arduino Nano will be used to control ignition.
Relay failure could result in the parachute not deploying (out of the second stage), or even the second stage going off before the first motor disconnects from the body.
EE is not my background (better with CS, but still crap at both). I have researched enough to have a decent understanding of the peripherals needed to launch rockets.
