[11:06] <Laurenceb_> I've been having problems with my code, so I emailed the people at MCS electronics, and they say they've breadboarded my hardware
[11:06] <Laurenceb_> and got the code working with a few changes! very good of them
[11:08] <Laurenceb_> only thing is they sent the gps logs it produced, so I looked up the position and its in a housing estate in buxton uk, about 10 miles from my house
[11:08] <Laurenceb_> they are in the netherlands, wtf is going on??

[11:25] <mc-> hi Laurence, I was just reading the logs + sent you an email.
[11:25] <mc-> which gps are you using?
[11:26] <Laurenceb_> at least it didnt line up with my house, that would be freaky
[11:26] <Laurenceb_> sirf2
[11:26] <Laurenceb_> its a holux gm-82
[11:26] <mc-> I reckon MCS just typed in your approx position
[11:27] <mc-> they can't have had a real GPS signal?
[11:27] <Laurenceb_> lol, if it was april fools day I'd be convinced
[11:27] <Laurenceb_> rocketboy just sent you an email
[11:28] <Laurenceb_> asking if we can use your balloon without launching your payload?
[11:28] <mc-> I replied, no problem
[11:28] <Laurenceb_> the weather is not looking good till later, we want to launch as late as poss
[11:28] <Laurenceb_> for slower, less gusty wind
[11:28] <Laurenceb_> thanx :-)
[11:29] <Laurenceb_> 12mph is about the speed during most of the tests
[11:29] <mc-> I've got some more balloons somewhere, if you need another one sometime
[11:30] <mc-> have rboy got helium?
[11:30] <Laurenceb_> thanks for offering, yes rocketboys picked up some helium
[11:31] <mc-> only condition is I want to do is the first rockoon launch with a glider on it..
[11:32] <Laurenceb_> that would be cool
[11:32] <Laurenceb_> are you planning on coming along tomorrow?
[11:32] <mc-> I've got 2 kids to look after...
[11:34] <Laurenceb_> brb

[22:26] <edwardmoore> hi steve
[22:28] <rocketboy> hi ed
[22:32] <rocketboy> laurence - anything you need me to bring tomorrow other than balloon etc. + radio system etc.
[22:33] <rocketboy> and the transmitter needs to be set to 4800baud 8,N,1
[22:33] <rocketboy> ?
[22:33] <Laurenceb_> sorry, was away
[22:33] <Laurenceb_> just sent you an email
[22:34] <Laurenceb_> have you got that battery powered soldering iron handy?
[22:34] <rocketboy> I'll bring it + my other tools
[22:35] <Laurenceb_> I'll try and bring solder, a few spare components, epoxy ect
[22:35] <Laurenceb_> been working all day on my glider, nightmare!
[22:35] <Laurenceb_> it should be recovered no matter what happens with the new crash recovery
[22:35] <rocketboy> yeah - hab things just eat up the time
[22:36] <Laurenceb_> -software crash that is
[22:36] <rocketboy> any idaea where you wil aim for yet?
[22:36] <Laurenceb_> should add system restore points a la windows
[22:36] <Laurenceb_> aim for some point downwind
[22:36] <rocketboy> how far
[22:36] <Laurenceb_> 10-15km
[22:37] <rocketboy> ok - i'll look for a site
[22:37] <Laurenceb_> tok
[22:37] <Laurenceb_> food - bbl
[22:37] <rocketboy> about wsw?
[22:37] <edwardmoore> this actually sounds damn exciting. gutted I can't make it
[22:38] <Laurenceb_> yep wsw, wind from ene
[22:40] <edwardmoore> steve i don't spose you know the ears site co-ordinates off the top of your head?
[22:43] <rocketboy> hang on

[23:01] <Laurenceb_> grr just realised I have a better servo
[23:01] <Laurenceb_> the one on the plane has a null point of +-5 degrees in the middle
[23:02] <Laurenceb_> this is about +-2 degrees
[23:02] <Laurenceb_> anyone know what point lithium grease freezes at?
[23:04] <rocketboy> humm - says it won't freeze on the net
[23:05] <Laurenceb_> maybe it gets more viscous
[23:05] <Laurenceb_> is that landing point east or west of greenwich?
[23:06] <Laurenceb_> my code treats east as +ive
[23:10] <rocketboy> west
[23:11] <rocketboy> ears is west
[23:11] <rocketboy> so this is wester
[23:12] <edwardmoore> i guess if you keep it jiggling it might be alright. maybe introduce some jitter into the servos :)
[23:12] <Laurenceb_> I'll take this servo along, we might stick it on
[23:13] <rocketboy> CU tomorrow
[23:13] <Laurenceb_> i'm sure it will get all the jiggling it could ever want from wind ect!
[23:13] <Laurenceb_> guess that might help sometimes tho
