[00:01] <icez> like a triangular-shaped wing inside a tube (which contains the payload) and you move it more on one side than the other
[00:01] <icez> and it'd turn one way
[00:01] <icez> and vice-versa
[00:01] <icez> if both sides are the same length outside, then it'd theoretically go straight
[00:02] <icez> still need a parachute though :)
[00:03] <jcoxon> oh i think i understand
[00:04] <jcoxon> so air goes through the tube and the wing changes the flow to control the direction
[00:04] <icez> I think it works a bit with the principle of inertia but I'm not sure :)
[00:04] <icez> not through the tube
[00:04] <icez> but having the wing more out on one side would make the whole thing turn on one side (since the big wing would catch more wing and turn)
[00:07] <jcoxon> oh okay

[22:11] <Laurenceb_> I've made some panoramas from the MiHAB3 video
[22:12] <Laurenceb_> used the origional mpegs
[22:17] <Laurenceb_> does anyone know of something for doing this well??
[22:26] <Laurenceb_> Also, I have a new LCD, it has a different chipset from the previous one and the image is corrupted, but I have a new graphics library for it
[22:27] <Laurenceb_> I got it to read the temperature records off eeprom, it got down to -56C on UKHAS1 !!
