[00:00] <Tiger^> but i'm doing it, two things a week! ;P
[00:00] <kc0wys> lol
[00:00] <kc0wys> damn this styrofoam is good stuff! can cut it with a knife :D
[00:00] <Tiger^> yeah
[00:01] <kc0wys> the extruded foam insulation stuff, for buildings i guess
[00:01] <Tiger^> yup
[00:02] <phatmonkey> what sort of insulation do you suggest for the glider
[00:02] <Tiger^> none?
[00:02] <phatmonkey> i need insulation!
[00:03] <phatmonkey> erm, i suppose
[00:03] <Tiger^> what about weight?
[00:03] <phatmonkey> weight isn't much of an issue
[00:03] <phatmonkey> in some ways, the more the better, it'll make it easier to penetrate into the jetstream
[00:04] <phatmonkey> but at the moment, we're well within limits, so insulation is worth it I guess
[00:05] <kc0wys> phatmonkey, what really needs to be insulated?
[00:05] <Tiger^> hmm
[00:05] <Tiger^> phatmonkey: what about space blanket?
[00:05] <kc0wys> batteries, but anything else?
[00:06] <phatmonkey> all the electronics
[00:06] <phatmonkey> i won't need loads, just a decent later between inside and outside
[00:06] <phatmonkey> the gumstix gear chucks out a lot of heat anyways
[00:18] <kc0wys> metal is a great insulator!
[00:18] <kc0wys> hehe
[00:39] <kc0wys> Tiger^: you used duct tape in the building of your box, right?
[00:51] <Tiger^> kc0wys: extruded foam, duct tape, hot glue, space blanket and scrim :)

[01:08] <kc0wys> oh cool 'tis what i am doing as well
[01:08] <kc0wys> just a bit smaller
[01:08] <kc0wys> 12" x 12" x 12"
[01:08] <kc0wys> 2" thick, so the interior is 8" x 8" x 8"
[01:09] <kc0wys> glad to know it works
[01:32] <Tiger^> hm
[01:32] <Tiger^> mine is 12" too
[01:33] <Tiger^> 3cm thick (that's about 1.2")
[01:37] <kc0wys> ah ok
[01:37] <kc0wys> for some reason i thought yours was bigger....
[01:37] <Tiger^> yeah it does look big
[01:37] <Tiger^> and actually it is big :)
[01:37] <kc0wys> lol
[01:38] <Tiger^> ;)
[01:45] <Tiger^> i should have used 2cm thick styro
[01:46] <Tiger^> it'd be much lighter
[02:47] <kc0wys> 2cm!?!
[02:47] <kc0wys> that's really too thin
[02:47] <kc0wys> unless you had another frame to reinforce it
[02:48] <kc0wys> anyhoo this box is done, at least till i get the space blanket to wrap it in :)
