[16:39] <Tiger^> hi, jcoxon
[16:39] <jcoxon> hey Tiger^
[16:39] <Tiger^> almost ready ;P
[16:39] <jcoxon> :-D
[16:40] <jcoxon> 9 UTC?
[16:40] <Tiger^> yup
[16:40] <jcoxon> cool
[16:40] <jcoxon> what do you think about the jetstream position?
[16:42] <Tiger^> i don't think anything ;)
[16:42] <jcoxon> good plan
[16:42] <Tiger^> i'll, literally, fly with the wind :D
[16:42] <jcoxon> yeah
[16:42] <jcoxon> not much choice over that!
[16:42] <Tiger^> yeah
[16:42] <jcoxon> looking at the 24hr forcasts they've improved since yesterday
[16:43] <Tiger^> in the 80's there was this cool 8bit Atari game
[16:43] <Tiger^> Up, Up & Away
[16:43] <jcoxon> are you in hte middle of poland?
[16:43] <jcoxon> hehe
[16:43] <Tiger^> you were flying a balloon
[16:43] <Tiger^> ;)
[16:44] <Tiger^> yeah, in the middle
[16:44] <jcoxon> then you might just get away with it :-D
[16:44] <jcoxon> not that it matters :-D
[16:44] <jcoxon> just less of a distance to go and get it!
[16:45] <jcoxon> for the cutdown are you having a preprogrammed polygon which if the gps goes out of it cuts down?
[16:46] <Tiger^> i hardcoded 250km from the launch point
[16:46] <jcoxon> right
[16:46] <Tiger^> or 9 hours
[16:46] <jcoxon> okay
[16:47] <jcoxon> i'm gonna go for a polygon approach i think
[16:47] <Tiger^> yeah, in the UK i would too
[16:47] <Tiger^> so close to the sea
[16:47] <jcoxon> :-D
[16:47] <Tiger^> i can't control my cutdown by remote anymore ;)
[16:47] <jcoxon> oh
[16:48] <Tiger^> i ripped a keying transistor from the pcb
[16:48] <jcoxon> oh dear
[16:48] <Tiger^> with the soldering pad :(
[16:48] <jcoxon> oops
[16:48] <Tiger^> but it was after 36hrs without sleep
[16:48] <Tiger^> these things happen ;)
[16:49] <Tiger^> i can see the positive side
[16:49] <Tiger^> i won't get trigger happy
[16:49] <jcoxon> yeah
[16:49] <jcoxon> lack of sleep was one thing that doomed peg II
[16:50] <Tiger^> why?
[16:50] <jcoxon> the flight computer wasn't actually working
[16:50] <jcoxon> i left it all too late
[16:50] <Tiger^> oh :/
[16:50] <jcoxon> got it sort of working
[16:50] <jcoxon> but then at launch it broke
[16:50] <jcoxon> i think the gps came disconnect from the gumstix
[16:50] <jcoxon> damn top heavy cf gpses
[16:50] <jcoxon> won't happen again!
[16:51] <Tiger^> :)
[16:51] <Tiger^> i'm now 100% sure i'll give the balloon at least 3lbs of lift
[16:51] <jcoxon> wow
[16:51] <jcoxon> thats a lot of lift
[16:51] <Tiger^> i want it to go as straight up as it can
[16:52] <jcoxon> okay
[16:52] <Tiger^> even at the cost of max alt.
[16:52] <jcoxon> okay
[16:56] <jcoxon> right i better get some revision done
[16:56] <Tiger^> ok
[16:56] <jcoxon> i'll be back on later
