[13:05] <jcoxon> few seconds after release
[13:06] <malgar> ok
[13:17] <malgar> i'm sad for your balloon.. it is a great project
[13:17] <jcoxon> not going to stop me doing it again
[13:17] <malgar> :D
[13:17] <jcoxon> its a shame but it was a mess - i wasn't happy with it when i launched
[13:18] <jcoxon> need to go back to basics
[13:18] <malgar> how much costs pegasus2 ?
[13:18] <jcoxon> £250-300
[13:18] <malgar> did you use somathing from pegasus1?
[13:18] <jcoxon> somethings
[13:18] <jcoxon> though i had to get a new gumtix as even though it surivived teh flight i then fried it
[13:19] <malgar> gulp! how did you fried it?
[13:19] <jcoxon> Pegasus III though will simpler, 200g balloon cost less then £100
[13:19] <jcoxon> i by mistake shorted it out with 12V
[13:20] <jcoxon> thinking of using an old second hand pda as the flight computer
[13:20] <malgar> ah.. about gumstix.. how do you program it? do you connect it to your home pc?
[13:20] <jcoxon> yeah through usb
[13:20] <jcoxon> it runs linux so you ssh into it
[13:20] <malgar> ah well
