[00:08] <hmh33> hah I was just playing the video and "I can see for miles" came on the mp3 player
[00:19] <edwardmoore> plan:
[00:19] <edwardmoore> camera on a ultra simple gyro rotation correction jobby?
[00:19] <edwardmoore> would hopefully knock out a decent bit of the spin
[00:19] <edwardmoore> ok bed time

[01:07] <CablitoE> the pictures
[01:09] <CablitoE> Nice.... very nice.
[01:22] <CablitoE> jp areospace might have a good point
[01:22] <CablitoE> vertical wings on payload to stability

[20:27] <phatmonkey> hey all
[20:27] <phatmonkey> about cablitoe's comment about vertical stability wings
[20:28] <phatmonkey> maybe we should make a frame like jp aerospace
[20:28] <phatmonkey> a frame with slots for people's payloads
[20:28] <phatmonkey> then the frame can be stabalised and possibly have tracking built in
[20:48] <rocketboy> is there any pictures of it?

[22:01] <hmh33> evening
[22:02] <rocketboy> hiya
[22:20] <jcoxon> hey all
[22:21] <jcoxon> phatmonkey, the problem with a frame is that its a large mass thats going to come dow
[22:21] <jcoxon> n
[22:26] <jcoxon> hmh33, what happened in the cu spaceflight meeting today?
[22:28] <hmh33> we hashed out a lot of stuff about the mini rocket
[22:28] <hmh33> current plan is for launch in 3 weeks' time
[22:29] <jcoxon> right
[22:29] <jcoxon> okay
[22:30] <jcoxon> i'm going to build Pegasus 4 (take 2)
[22:30] <jcoxon> just going to have an upward facing camera which will record video
[22:31] <hmh33> sounds good
[22:31] <hmh33> Tracker4 is working great now btw
[22:31] <hmh33> so that can be slapped onto whatever
[22:32] <jcoxon> okay
[22:32] <jcoxon> i think we should start the debriefing email that we've talked about
[22:32] <jcoxon> as rocketboy suggested
[22:32] <jcoxon> get it done so we can move on
[22:33] <hmh33> yes
[22:33] <hmh33> Carl said he was going to email everyone tonight
[22:34] <hmh33> but I'll put together a report about the launch and send it out
[22:34] <jcoxon> okay
[22:34] <jcoxon> i think rocketboy and I want to discuss the lessons to take away from the launch
[22:34] <jcoxon> i'll email those involved now
[22:35] <hmh33> sounds good
[22:35] <hmh33> it's easy to get complacent just because we got it back
[22:35] <hmh33> but we could easily not have
[22:35] <jcoxon> i know
[22:36] <jcoxon> so expect an email in abit :-D
[22:36] Action: jcoxon fires up itunes, webmail and gets typing
[22:40] <rocketboy> pics from Saturtday - http://www.randomsolutions.co.uk/xaben1/xaben1.htm
[22:46] <jcoxon> nice
[22:47] <hmh33> nice ones, Steve
[22:47] <hmh33> did yours cut out after apogee too?
[22:48] <hmh33> we lost GPS lock at ~24km and then it fell for 30 mins (impact knocked the battery out and stopped recording)
[22:54] <jcoxon> rocketboy, what is the chaos called on balloon bursting?
[22:54] <jcoxon> i can't remember it
[22:54] <rocketboy> no I have some descent photos - will email the URL shortly
[22:58] <jcoxon> email away...

[23:00] <CablitoE> Hey there
[23:01] <hmh33> hiya
[23:01] <CablitoE> Nice launch
[23:02] <CablitoE> I loved the "harmless experiment"
[23:02] <hmh33> I'm looking at some Yaesu radios on eBay
[23:02] <CablitoE> Did someone phone giving the position or you guys were able to track it on your own?
[23:03] <rocketboy> well if you find one let me know - so we don't end up bidding on the same thing
[23:03] <CablitoE> What model/type of Yaesu
[23:03] <rocketboy> FT790
[23:04] <jcoxon> CablitoE, someone called the number on it to say they had found it

[23:05] <CablitoE> How nice to live in an civilized country :)
[23:05] <icez> lol
[23:05] <CablitoE> that radio is out of line?
[23:08] <CablitoE> Hey what about the satelite link idea? actually paying for a data channel
[23:10] <rocketboy> URL emailed
[23:18] <jcoxon> thanks rocketboy
[23:19] <jcoxon> right i'm off to bed - will speak to you all soon
[23:19] <jcoxon> night
