[07:13] <Darkside> we flew that on out last flight

[07:22] <trialex> hmmm interesting thanks. I've been looking at the BMP085 - they only claim a range of up to 9000m though. Although as you say, often these sorts of things will work outside their datasheet's listed operating range
[07:31] <trialex> OK wait, dunno what I'm doing - I think I was getting my units wrong.... damn hPa, kPa, inHg, mmHg... etc

[07:35] <trialex> OK looking AGAIN, the BMP085 datasheet graph shows the altitude at 300hPa as 9000m, but the standard atmosphere model gives the pressure at 300hPa (=30kPa) as 30,000m ....

[11:41] <psionic_> A piece of A5 paper may fly further.

[11:44] <Laurenceb> i used to be good at paper planes...
[11:44] <Laurenceb> iirc youd struggle to get past a glide ratio of 8
[11:45] <Darkside> heh, 8
[11:45] <Laurenceb> but more importantly its ghoing to spiral, so not go anywhere
[11:45] <Darkside> i've flown gliders with glide ratios of 45 to 1
[11:46] <Laurenceb> unless you have an imu on there
[11:46] <Laurenceb> same as the rogallo when the winch servo broke
[11:46] <Laurenceb> imo is actually a disadvantage for a hab glider
[11:47] <Laurenceb> as you only need 3 or so to get back top launch site, and if the flight software goes mad it could alsily end up in the sea
[11:48] <Laurenceb> rogallo ended up being about 3.7, but it wasnt very well trimmed, ive got 4.5 with rogallos in tests
[11:49] <jgrahamc> So, it's 5,800 km from Berlin to Delhi. Starting from a height of 40km that's a glide ratio of 145:1.
[11:49] <Laurenceb> lol
[11:49] <Darkside> but its lgiight
[11:49] <Laurenceb> http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7947087481519535776#
[11:49] <Darkside> it wouldn't glide
[11:49] <Darkside> it would get blown
[11:49] <jgrahamc> I agree, it might get blown along.
[11:49] <Darkside> its a bit of paper with a microsd card
[11:50] <Darkside> hell light
[11:50] <Laurenceb> http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7947087481519535776#docid=4858664474879256299
[11:51] Action: Darkside is on a n900
[11:51] <Laurenceb> ^thats about the best you can get from a rogallo, the plastic helps as theres no porosity
[11:51] <Darkside> cant view it :(
[11:51] <Laurenceb> nvm
[11:51] <jgrahamc> The article says it was done with the help of "The Icarus Project" so I assume rjharrison can tell us more.
[11:51] <Laurenceb> aiui its not connected with him
[11:54] <Laurenceb> Ikarus vrs Icarus
[11:55] <jgrahamc> Ah
[11:55] <jgrahamc> OK
[11:55] <jgrahamc> The guys in the video definitely look British.
[11:56] Action: Laurenceb just noticed the red bull can in the video
[11:57] <Laurenceb> forgot about that lol
[12:04] <eroomde> if we're discussing the paper planes claim, then yes it's total bullshit
[12:04] <eroomde> but it's an advertising stunt
[12:04] <eroomde> they know perfectly wel that they can say 'people say they have seen them as far away as delhi but we hven't confirmed that yet!' know perfectly well it's nonesense but that it'll still get reported
[12:05] <eroomde> there's an arguement for bringing back burning at the stake
[12:05] <jgrahamc> It does rather sound like that. The words are weasly and the company behind the whole thing is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Viral_Factory
[12:05] <eroomde> yes i knwo - they rang me up to ask for help many months ago
[12:05] <eroomde> polite f-off from me
[12:06] <jgrahamc> Ha ha ha. Interesting.
[12:07] <eroomde> i saw a blog comment along the lines of 'samsung must be loving this - you can't buy this kind of publicity!'
[12:07] <eroomde> which of course is exactly what they did do
[12:08] <jgrahamc> Speaking of Project Icarus. Their blog does specifically say that the expert who helped them was "Robert Harrison"
[12:08] <eroomde> steve gave them some help too
[12:08] <eroomde> i beleive he did the plane dropping bit
[12:09] <eroomde> right munch time
[12:09] <eroomde> back in a bit
[12:09] <jgrahamc> Which reminds me, I need to give Steve some money for a balloon.

[15:08] <NigeyS|> Dan-K2VOL .. ?
[15:09] <Dan-K2VOL> hi NigeyS|
[15:09] <NigeyS|> hey, sorry if i missed what happened, was wondering how the test went, did you find the fault with the ballast controller ?
[15:10] <Dan-K2VOL> oh the test ended last night at 70 hours
[15:10] <Dan-K2VOL> when the dry ice ran out
[15:10] <Dan-K2VOL> ballast controller was a software issue, the guy who's writing the software used arduino delay() function, which may cause it to not respond to I2C while in the delay
[15:11] <NigeyS|> ahhh that's good that its not a hardware fault then
[15:12] <Dan-K2VOL> the xBees though may have a hardware fault in the cold
[15:12] <Dan-K2VOL> which is a big problem
[15:12] <Dan-K2VOL> as they are our temperature sensor for the helium
[15:12] <NigeyS|> oh, i thought they were good up to -40 ?
[15:12] <Dan-K2VOL> so did we
[15:13] <Dan-K2VOL> we're still troubleshooting, but they didn't work for the entire test, until we warmed them back up
[15:13] <NigeyS|> no possibility of some kind of mini heater for them? sorry if that sounds obvious and daft..
[15:13] <Dan-K2VOL> it's possible it's the socket on the FIOs
[15:13] <Dan-K2VOL> no, heat costs a lot of battery power
[15:14] <NigeyS|> that's true, what a pain!
[15:14] <SpeedEvil> I was looking earlier at thermos flasks.
[15:14] <SpeedEvil> The glass element is actually very light.
[15:14] <SpeedEvil> But - nobody sells glass thermos flasks anymore
[15:15] <NigeyS|> hmm good point actually, my thermos is all stainless steel, no glass in sight :|
[15:16] <SpeedEvil> The SS ones are nearly as good thermally, and about 18 orders of magnitude more robust.
[15:17] <NigeyS|> oh aye, it keeps my coffee warm for a good 4 hours, even when outside in winter with the telescope, soup to!
[15:19] <Dan-K2VOL> SpeedEvil, I have several thermal glass flasks that I bought in Walgreens stores here in the US, the Thermos corporation makes a "widemouth" version that's got a 3" diameter opening
[15:19] <Dan-K2VOL> we flew the battery pack inside one for SNOX II
[15:19] <Dan-K2VOL> I'm sorry, SNOX III
[15:19] <SpeedEvil> Dan-K2VOL: how long ago?
[15:20] <SpeedEvil> Most I looked at recently seem to have gone to ss
[15:20] <Dan-K2VOL> around Feb 2008
[15:21] <Dan-K2VOL> Here's the product SpeedEvil - glass bottle: http://www.thermos.com/product_details.aspx?ProdID=1261&CatCode=FOOD&q=
[15:22] <Dan-K2VOL> and the larger one that I actually used
[15:22] <Dan-K2VOL> http://www.thermos.com/product_details.aspx?ProdID=1262&CatCode=FOOD&q=
[15:25] <Dan-K2VOL> SpeedEvil, here is the assembled SNOX II and III payload, you see the round pink styrofoam plug which is jammed into the mouth of the vacuum bottle that was inside that plastic thermos cover: http://www.flickr.com/photos/spiritofknoxville/2178633185/in/set-72157603668722868/

[18:28] <RocketBoy> oooo BTW - the highaltitude log search only seems to work on the old logs now - is that right?
[18:28] <jcoxon> yes
[18:28] <jcoxon> it got left behind in the server change
[18:28] <RocketBoy> jcoxon:yes - need some 60um nylon or better mylar
[18:29] <RocketBoy> I was thinking I should have a go at producing an integrated search covering all the old logs
[18:30] <jcoxon> oh you are very welcome to
[18:30] <jcoxon> i can find all the old logs for you
[18:30] <NigeyS> evening jcoxon , RocketBoy
[18:31] <jcoxon> hey NigeyS
[18:31] <jcoxon> how goes the payload?
[18:31] <RocketBoy> was planning on getting all the old logs and then downloading the new logs daily to a server (rather than another bot)
[18:31] <NigeyS> haha dont ask, i watched my ntx2 go up in smoke last night
[18:31] <jcoxon> well the habhub server can be used

[19:50] <fsphil> yea, I used that on the first launch
[19:50] <mattltm> Work ok?
[19:50] <fsphil> very well
[19:51] <fsphil> the balloon didn't go too far, but I had no signal problems
[19:51] <mattltm> jobs a goodun!
[19:51] <fsphil> M0DTS was also able to hear it
[19:52] <mattltm> Did you use a choke on it?
[19:52] <fsphil> nothing, just the coax straight to the ntx2
[19:53] <fsphil> I tried it on the ft817 and the swr wasn't great
[19:54] <mattltm> Try coiling a few turns of coax about 50mm diamiter just under where the screen is folded back to.
[19:54] <mattltm> It will prevent RF flowing back down the coax

[20:03] <mattltm> that one used the earth wire from 2.5mm twin and earth mains cable.
[20:03] <mattltm> Works very well and is nice and sturdy.
[20:04] <fsphil> I'm after sturdy :)

[20:05] <mattltm> I would be tempted to use an SMA pigtail from the NTX2 and build somthink like that image off a SMA plug.
[20:06] <fsphil> that's what I did last time, but the signal was way down
[20:06] <mattltm> on Hadie 2?
[20:06] <fsphil> yea
[20:07] <fsphil> didn't take a picture of it unfortunately
[20:07] <mattltm> Hummmmm
[20:07] <mattltm> Interesting.
[20:07] <fsphil> I think the main element might have got damaged or fell off
[20:07] <mattltm> I guess less mechanical connections = less to go wrong.
[20:08] <W0OTM-iPad> 19" for each leg?
[20:08] <fsphil> that's my plan by making it from the coax

[20:08] smea (~smealum@85-170-63-217.rev.numericable.fr) left irc: Ping timeout: 250 seconds
[20:09] <mattltm> it should be abot 6.5' per legto match on 434.075
[20:09] <mattltm> so 16.5 is right :)
[20:09] <mattltm> opps. 6.5"
[20:09] <mattltm> not feet!
[20:09] <fsphil> lol
[20:09] <W0OTM-iPad> I was thinking for 2M
[20:09] <W0OTM-iPad> Sry
[20:10] <mattltm> Yup 19" for 2M
[20:10] <mattltm> fsphil - How about a folded dipole? :P
[20:11] <fsphil> lol, maybe for the ground station :)
[20:11] <mattltm> I dont know, maybe a PCB based folded?
[20:11] <mattltm> or maybe a etched ground plane?
[20:12] <mattltm> Are the regs for 10mw ERP?
