That re-entry heating issue is because you put an avionics directly on top of your heat shield- heat from re-entry gets conducted from the hot heat shield to the much less heat tolerant avionics and can easily cook them, so it’ best to attach a heat shield to something more heatproof with the avionics on top of that.

I thought their may be conduction if head going on.... also thought avionics had been reasonably resilient in previous hops before having heat shields... time to go finding other materials to use (space plane tanks?)

Cut the feed just before it splashes down? That sounds ominous... :0.0:

it actually did the horrible water physics jumping around and I felt a physics glitch should not be allowed the final word lol...
