[00:05] <natrium42> center of mass?
[00:05] <laurenceb> yeah
[00:05] <laurenceb> basically I need the center of mass in the right place
[00:06] <laurenceb> as you more it forwards on rogallos they glide better and better until you reach a point where it goes into a dive
[00:06] <laurenceb> I need it as close as possible to that critical point
[00:12] <natrium42> tricky
[00:12] <laurenceb> well its only made of dowel so I can always trim bits of spar
[00:17] <natrium42> i wonder what the weather outlook is for this weekend
[00:18] <natrium42> robert wants to launch
[00:18] <laurenceb> ah

[00:24] <natrium42> lul
[00:54] <laurenceb> hmm this is odd
[00:54] <laurenceb> it appears its not fixed
[00:55] <laurenceb> the ADC is always busy, even if I leave it for ages
[00:55] <laurenceb> the only way to get it working is to slow down the spi

[18:28] <Xenion> hello jcoxon
[18:28] <jnd> hi
[18:29] <jcoxon> hows everything going?
[18:31] <Xenion> not so good ( not bad ) but im very very busy right now
[18:31] <Xenion> due to my job
[18:32] <Xenion> so i havn't had much time to work on my project :)
[18:32] <Xenion> but everything is fine
[18:32] <jcoxon> know the feeling
[18:32] <jcoxon> i've been pretty busy
[18:32] <jcoxon> haven't done much work on my payload
[18:34] <Xenion> it's good to hear that i'm not the only one :D
[18:34] <jcoxon> hehe
[18:34] <jcoxon> might get some stuff done tonight
[18:35] <jcoxon> i'm also waiting for some more parts to arrive
[18:35] <Xenion> i have work to do tonight ...
[18:35] <Xenion> just finishing up some paperwork then i will start with it :D
[18:35] <jcoxon> :-D
[18:36] <jcoxon> Xenion, so you plan to use prebuilt radio modems?
[18:36] <Xenion> yes
[18:36] <Xenion> got the xtend ones
[18:36] <jcoxon> what sort of range do they give?
[18:36] <Xenion> jcoxon, i'm still thinking about how to solve the GPS prob
[18:36] <Xenion> jcoxon, they state 64km
[18:37] <Xenion> i will do some testing on clear ground
[18:37] <Xenion> to measure the real range
[18:37] <jcoxon> Xenion, interesting - usually in flight the radios get a lot more range then when they are on the ground
[18:37] <jcoxon> whats the GPS issues?
[18:38] <Xenion> jcoxon, yes i counting on that
[18:38] <jcoxon> Xenion, we get excellent range off our 10mW modules
[18:38] <Xenion> jcoxon, no issue at all.. i just havn't figured out what gps modem to use
[18:38] <jcoxon> this one:
[18:38] <jcoxon> http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8889
[18:39] <jcoxon> its amazing
[18:39] <jcoxon> will work above 24km (unlike SIRF III based modules)
[18:40] <Xenion> looks good ( even the prize ! )
[18:40] <Xenion> :)
[18:40] <Xenion> thanks for the hint
[18:40] <Xenion> ^^ ... it's one of these moments where you think .. "you should have asked earlier"
[18:40] <Xenion> ^^
[18:40] <Xenion> i've read about the SIRF ones
[18:40] <Xenion> and tried to get one on ebay
[18:40] <Xenion> but didn't work ...
[18:41] <jcoxon> if not get a lassen iq
[18:41] <jcoxon> they also are good
[18:41] <jcoxon> but that ones nice as it has the built in antenna
[18:47] <Xenion> ordered it
[18:47] <Xenion> :D
[18:47] <Xenion> thnaks

[18:50] <natrium42> hello Hiena
[18:50] <jcoxon> Xenion, yeah, that gps module should be perfect
[18:50] <Hiena> Well, the AD811 is rocks as a oscillator.
[18:50] <natrium42> Xenion, have you launched before?
[18:50] <jcoxon> i've use a ublox 4 (it has a ublox 5)
[18:51] <Xenion> natrium42, nope
[18:53] <natrium42> cool, first time
