[01:45] <Laurenceb> I saw you have a 3gyros, 3 axis accel, magnetometer

[02:03] <natrium42> that easy star airplane looks good
[02:03] <natrium42> maybe i will order it
[02:03] <natrium42> could be used to test the range of radio without launching a balloon
[02:04] <natrium42> (with automatic return to home location if the communication is interrupted, of course)
[02:07] <Laurenceb> easy star?
[02:12] <natrium42> http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=multiplex+easy+star
[02:12] <natrium42> :D
[02:13] <natrium42> there are some crazy-long threads on rcgroups about it
[02:15] <Laurenceb> looks nice
[02:16] <Laurenceb> probably steerable using just single axis control
[02:23] <Laurenceb> yes, just stick an AVR between the reciever pcb and rudder servo :D

[16:06] <akawaka> woke me up
[16:06] <Cooleo> Sorry.
[16:06] <Cooleo> Oh right
[16:06] <Cooleo> Earthquake :P
[16:07] <akawaka> not you:)

[16:45] <Cooleo> Hmm, Just made another PulseJet. Do you think they could make enough thrust to lift a rocket?
[16:47] <Laurenceb> with a jar?
[16:50] edmoore (n=edmoore@maximegalon.chu.cam.ac.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[16:51] <Cooleo> I was thinking Alminumum
[16:51] <Cooleo> I used a Jar, but Ive also used Coke Cans
[16:52] <Laurenceb> nice stuff
[16:52] <Laurenceb> but be careful
[16:53] <Cooleo> Yeah
[16:53] <Cooleo> ive burnt myself with Meths before.
[16:53] <Cooleo> It hurts.
[16:58] <Laurenceb> you wont be able to power a rocket without oxygen
[16:59] <Cooleo> So you would need a seprate oxygen intake?
[17:00] <Laurenceb> yes
[17:00] <Laurenceb> aka a rocket engine
[17:01] <Cooleo> :p
[17:01] <Cooleo> Im sure halfords used to sell little cansiters of Oxygen.
[17:01] <Cooleo> And you cant use the oxygen in teh air?
[17:01] <Laurenceb> eh halford
[17:01] <Laurenceb> I doubt it
[17:01] <Laurenceb> maybe for welding...
[17:02] <Laurenceb> but youd be better with nos
[17:02] <Laurenceb> low air density at altitude
[17:02] <Cooleo> I would need both NOS and Meths right?
[17:03] <Laurenceb> well
[17:03] <Laurenceb> that would be interesting
[17:03] <Cooleo> Explosion?:p
[17:03] <Laurenceb> you could make a very powerful rocket engine
[17:03] <Cooleo> Haha.
[17:04] <Cooleo> Most things would melt though
[17:04] <Laurenceb> but most people use nos and solid fuel
[17:04] <Cooleo> Can you make Solid Fuel?
[17:04] <Laurenceb> as its easier to build
[17:04] <Laurenceb> plastic
[17:04] <Laurenceb> search on youtube, theres a few engines built like that
[17:05] <Cooleo> 1/3 sugar and 2/3 potassium nitrate

[17:06] <fergusnoble> hello
[17:06] <edmoore> to reduce the activation energy - it burs a bit slow otherwise
[17:06] <Cooleo> Alternativly, Use the old fashioned Baking Soda and Vineger.
[17:06] <edmoore> fergusnoble: so fr as i can tell they've only shipped us 3 LPC2148s
[17:07] <edmoore> but i am not in my room so i will check the other two aren't hiding on a seperate bit of reel down there
[17:07] <fergusnoble> ok, have they shipped everything else?
[17:07] <edmoore> yes, save the back-ordered red smd leds
[17:07] <fergusnoble> ok, cool

[17:08] <edmoore> mornings work better with me atm - i have 9am and 2pm lectures, so the gap in between works
[17:08] <fergusnoble> ok, just let me know
[17:08] <fergusnoble> you could work while i buid
[17:08] <edmoore> I wouldn't work
