[10:44] <Laurenceb> im based in eng
[10:44] <fsphil> SamSilver, snow there would probably make global news :)
[10:44] <cuddykid> ahh right! - I have yet to approach the eng dept with regards to HAB
[10:44] <cuddykid> have you mentioned HAB to them yet?
[10:45] <SamSilver> yip sure would
[10:46] <SamSilver> I am kind of wishing I never bought 2000grams of long life lubber
[10:46] <SamSilver> am scared it gonna float back to china
[10:46] <costyn> SamSilver: where do the prevailing winds go where you're at?
[10:47] <fsphil> lol
[10:47] <costyn> SamSilver: if you're scared of a floater, just give it more helium
[10:47] <NigelMoby> overfill overfill ;)
[10:47] <daveake> I did with Buzz, and look what happened there :)
[10:47] <fsphil> or add air
[10:48] <SamSilver> south west
[10:48] <NigelMoby> argon!
[10:48] <fsphil> lol
[10:48] <costyn> fsphil: add air to the helium in the balloon? what effect does that have?
[10:48] <NigelMoby> lead weight effect.

[10:49] <NigelMoby> CAN'T HEAR U LAURENCE
[10:49] <fsphil> haha, I thought the caps where for dramatic effect
[10:49] <SamSilver> costyn: it is swings and round abouts more He lower burst less payload also works but I had it all calculated before purchase
[10:49] <x-f> SamSilver, will you have a cutdown?
[10:49] <fsphil> costyn, less lift and lower burst altitude
[10:49] <fsphil> makes it work like a smaller balloon
[10:50] <costyn> fsphil: makes sense :)

[10:55] <cuddykid> good stuff - I can't wait to see how these easy radios perform - but something is tell me it will be rather underwhelming lol
[10:55] <daveake> I've only tried those on the ground. Worked up to about 200m away with buildings in the way
[10:57] <SamSilver> what about an RF amp on the Tx
[10:59] <cuddykid> that might work
[11:00] <SamSilver> or just send a mouse up with the cat to distract it for an hour or sooooo
[11:00] <SamSilver> then it plays with balloon

[15:26] <WillDuckworth> with hydrogen
[15:26] <fsphil> ah ha
[15:26] <fsphil> I suspected H2
[15:27] <WillDuckworth> found info here: http://www.californianearspaceproject.com/CNSP-11_info.html
[15:28] <fsphil> lithium batteries, that explains why it transmitted for so long
[15:29] <Dan-K2VOL> did you say dilithium?
[15:29] <Dan-K2VOL> hydrogen?!
[15:29] <fsphil> I lost my dilithium crystals
[15:29] daveake_ (~daveake@daveake.plus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[15:30] <fsphil> I was wondering before if they'd used H2, and if that had some effect on the balloon to make it last as long as it did
[15:31] <Dan-K2VOL> well it would reduce the diffusion rate
[15:31] <Laurenceb> hmm
[15:31] <fsphil> yea, bigger molecules
[15:31] <Laurenceb> yeah but the latex lasted bettwen as well
[15:32] <Dan-K2VOL> the hydrogen could have reacted with the latex (or whatever they're making it out of)?
[15:32] <fsphil> does helium diffusing through the latex have an efect?
[15:32] <Dan-K2VOL> well it lowers lift
[15:32] <fsphil> on the latex itself I mean
[15:32] <Dan-K2VOL> no, helium is about as inert as it gets
[15:33] <fsphil> true

[15:50] <Zuph> You see Eveready Lithiums online, but they always picture Energizers :-p

[15:56] <SAIDias> I cant find a Li-Po datasheet
[15:57] <Dan-K2VOL> Lithium Polymer is rechargeable
[15:57] <Dan-K2VOL> Lithium Iron Disulfide is not
[15:57] <Dan-K2VOL> Li/FeS2 performs much better than LiPo in cold
[15:57] <Dan-K2VOL> and power per weight ratio
[15:58] Nick change: mazoo -> mora
[15:58] <Zuph> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithium_battery#Chemistries
[15:59] <SAIDias> Li/FeS2 -40C & Li-Po -20C?
[15:59] <NigeyS> you wont get a lipo working at -20 thats cack
[15:59] <Dan-K2VOL> mostly so
[15:59] <Dan-K2VOL> it's not a simple cutoff
[16:00] <NigeyS> all mine, and tests have gone dead at below -8
[16:00] <Dan-K2VOL> so use energizer e2 lithiums (Li/FeS2) when you need cold performance
[16:01] <daveake_> Some on RS are certainly specced for -20. I've never tried using one at low temps though
[16:01] <Dan-K2VOL> your amount of current draw will need to be taken into consideration
[16:01] <Laurenceb> could be that the hydrogen reacted
[16:01] <Zuph> Although they will self-heat a little.
[16:01] <NigeyS> Dan-K2VOL, i was only drawing <100ma probably not much self heating with such a small draw
[16:02] <SAIDias> but if the batteries are insulated well, they really wont see temps that low
[16:02] <Zuph> They will if you stay in the air for 50+ hours.

[16:06] <Dan-K2VOL> doesn't seem to be the chemicals NigeyS, I thought it would have been
[16:07] <NigeyS> me too :|
[16:07] <Dan-K2VOL> according to this pleasant section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithium_battery#Safety_issues_and_regulation
[16:08] <SAIDias> im not convinced that a well insulated battery would get that cold
[16:08] <NigeyS> SAIDias, insulate it in some aerogel, and it'll probably be fine
[16:08] <Dan-K2VOL> well I suppose it is chemicals, but I think it's the chemical created external to the sealed cell by the electricity
[16:09] <Dan-K2VOL> SAIDias, it depends on many factos
[16:09] <Dan-K2VOL> r
[16:09] <NigeyS> a too-rapid discharge of a lithium battery can result in overheating of the battery, rupture, and even explosion
[16:09] <Dan-K2VOL> SAIDias, where are you from
[16:09] <NigeyS> heh yeah, lipos are nice and explosive when pierced to !
[16:10] <Randomskk> explosion is a bit of an exaggeration
[16:10] <Randomskk> more like violent fire
[16:10] <NigeyS> lots of smoke and hissing to
[16:11] <Zuph> heh
[16:12] <SAIDias> I dont think slapping some cheap EPS foam box together is going to do the job
[16:12] <SAIDias> expanded poly not extruded
[16:12] <NigeyS> Aerogel Granules :)
[16:13] <SAIDias> extruded poly absorbes moisture
[16:13] <SAIDias> I have never worked with Areogel, so I can't comment on that
[16:14] <Dan-K2VOL> anyway, it's a simple calculation of stored solar heat + generated heat (from discharge reaction and electronics inefficiency and heater elements) - heat loss
[16:14] wa5qjh (~gbc@ joined #highaltitude.
[16:15] <Dan-K2VOL> a good dark payload will store plenty of heat in the battery mass during the day
[16:15] <NigeyS> black payload box then ? :D
[16:16] <Dan-K2VOL> spirit of Knoxville IV's battery stack stayed above 20 for most of the night without using the resistive heaters, I think it only came on for about a half hour near dawn
[16:16] <Dan-K2VOL> while the external temp was ~ -50C
[16:17] <Dan-K2VOL> that was painted black, and had 5" of polystyrene foam insulation
[16:17] <NigeyS> thats impressive
[16:17] <Dan-K2VOL> that included the heat generated by the electronics, which is imporant
[16:18] <SAIDias> A dense polystyrene foam has great insulative properties
[16:18] <Dan-K2VOL> getting temperature telemetry from inside your battery pack is generally really valuable data, moreso than from on the circuit board of the flight computer
[16:20] <SAIDias> although, I have never tried BB bubble wrap, I don't feel it would be better than polystyrene foam
[16:21] <Dan-K2VOL> if you're flying only daytime, you can skip a lot of the insulation as long as it's airtight and dark colored
[16:21] <Dan-K2VOL> the bubble wrap doesn't do much at all at night
[16:22] <Dan-K2VOL> the temperature on one of his bubble wrapped long latex flights fell off a cliff at sunset
[16:24] <SAIDias> why don't ppl wrap the exterior of their payload with photovoltaic cells
[16:24] <Zuph> Heavy, expensive, can't derive a lot of power from them (relative to batteries)
[16:25] <SAIDias> Heavy?
[16:25] <Dan-K2VOL> not terribly,
[16:25] <Dan-K2VOL> but
[16:25] <Zuph> Well, weight per unit energy.
[16:25] <UpuWork> Dan when are you sending us a payload deliberately ?
[16:25] <SAIDias> they could easily recharge/maintain batteries
[16:25] <Dan-K2VOL> the power-to-weight ratio doesn't come out in favor of solar cells unless you run longer than energizer lithiums can
[16:25] <SAIDias> i dissagree
[16:25] <Dan-K2VOL> due to the very light weight of the e2 lithium cells
[16:26] <Dan-K2VOL> well, it may also depend on your power draw requirement
[16:26] <SAIDias> photovoltaic cells by them selves are light
[16:26] <Zuph> And fragile, if not in an epoxy carrier.
[16:26] number10 (568eafbe@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[16:26] <Dan-K2VOL> they are light
[16:27] <SAIDias> for a flight, what threats are there?
[16:27] <Dan-K2VOL> it would be easy to work up a spreadsheet to explore the comparison, it may be better for lower latitudes, or summer, we compared them for White Star
[16:27] <Dan-K2VOL> which will have low sun angle in the winter, up to 50 degrees latitude
[16:27] <Dan-K2VOL> which could be improved by a sun tracking mechanism, but that's more weight
[16:28] <SAIDias> but at altitude, that doesnt make any difference
[16:28] <Dan-K2VOL> which thing
[16:28] <SAIDias> the position of the sun
[16:29] <SAIDias> oh well, not worth debating over...will just fly one and see
[16:29] <SAIDias> we can speculate all day
[16:30] <Dan-K2VOL> sure
[16:30] <Dan-K2VOL> it has to be done
[16:30] <Dan-K2VOL> to go farther
[16:31] <SAIDias> 50 hours using an energizer battery isnt going to cut it
[16:31] <NigeyS> i'm gonna give all my payloads a can of redbull, will woop anyones ass then! :p
[16:31] <Dan-K2VOL> WA2ADG is working on building a solar powered 200 gram 10 meter payload

[16:31] <Dan-K2VOL> haha nigey
[16:31] <NigeyS> :D fear the wings!
[16:31] <Dan-K2VOL> this past flight is about as far as 50 hours is ever going to take you
[16:31] <Zuph> Comparing http://www.sparkfun.com/products/7840 to L91 Lithiums:
[16:31] <Dan-K2VOL> they really had a fantastic wind
[16:32] <Zuph> Panel = 7 Lithium batteries in weight, which is about 36kJ.
[16:32] <Dan-K2VOL> 10m is aparently really opening up worldwide
[16:32] <SAIDias> Zuph: what panel are you using as your example?
[16:32] <Zuph> If you can get 4 sun-hours per day, then the panel compares favorably to batteries.
[16:32] <Zuph> The sparkfun panel I linked.
[16:32] <WillDuckworth> http://www.selectsolar.co.uk/brand/6/powerfilm-inc
[16:33] <Zuph> But that doesn't include the weight of rechargeable batteries, circuits, etc.
[16:33] <NigeyS> wow 100grams for just the panel
[16:33] <SAIDias> I work with a photovoltaic manufacturing company. I can get JUST the photovoltaic cells. REALLY light weight
[16:34] <SAIDias> the majority of the weight is in the frame/enclosure, not not the cells themselves
[16:34] <eroomde> that's a huge advantage
[16:34] <WillDuckworth> those powerfilm ones are only a few grams
[16:34] <NigeyS> http://www.selectsolar.co.uk/prod/266/powerfilm-mp72150-200ma-72v-mini-solar-panel
[16:34] <NigeyS> ideal, and 26grams
[16:35] <Dan-K2VOL> ho nice
[16:35] <NigeyS> eroomde, had a Q for you earlier, but cant remember what it was now ...lol
[16:35] <SAIDias> my point exactly
[16:35] <NigeyS> i saw some really funky parachute, it was related to that
[16:35] <UpuWork> Dan-K2VOL you know when you send one over are you doing a cut down and geofence to terminate the flight ?
[16:36] <NigeyS> land in anywhere in the u.k but not in my back garden!
[16:36] <Dan-K2VOL> we have manual remote control, so thankfully we've not had to do the programming of such a fence!
[16:36] <Dan-K2VOL> but
[16:36] <Zuph> UpuWork: We've got positive control over the thing. We can tell it to slice down.
[16:37] <UpuWork> ok how does that work at the other side of the world, would it need someone over here to terminate the flight ?
[16:37] <Dan-K2VOL> but the plan is to cut it down near, but not on, a civilized area, so someone can go retreive the thing
[16:37] <Dan-K2VOL> Iridium satellite network
[16:37] <UpuWork> ah

[16:37] <UpuWork> ok you have a northern england recovery team here o7
[16:38] <Dan-K2VOL> excellent!
[16:38] <NigeyS> welsh 1 to, just dont hit the sheep ok !
[16:38] <UpuWork> hell I'll even go south if needs be
[16:38] <SAIDias> LOL, how much is WhiteStar willing to spend to beak the record?
[16:38] <UpuWork> I'd avoid scotland
[16:38] <Dan-K2VOL> haha it's padded, and so are sheep, what's the harm
[16:38] <UpuWork> primarily because its full of scots
[16:38] <UpuWork> but secondly because its full of hills
[16:38] <NigeyS> UpuWork, most people do ;)
[16:38] <Dan-K2VOL> White star won't be breaking any existing records on the arhab charts
[16:38] <UpuWork> avoid liverpool as it will just get shot down/stolen
[16:38] <SAIDias> I guess we had NASA's budget we could goto the moon too
[16:39] <Dan-K2VOL> the flight last week is not possible to beat with a ZP balloon in the jet stream using exempt payloads
[16:39] <NigeyS> haha they'll nick the dam alcohol ballast thinking they can drink it in liverpool ;)
[16:39] <UpuWork> well whatever we can do from this side of the pond just let us know
[16:39] <Dan-K2VOL> unless the ZP balloons are suddenly an order of magnitude better at staying up with our new vent
[16:39] <Dan-K2VOL> but I don't think they will be that much
[16:39] <SAIDias> what "charts" is WhiteStar working towards?
[16:40] <Zuph> Well Dan-K2VOL, we've got a shot at beating Duration

[16:41] <Dan-K2VOL> the max was 40 hours, and it was quite an outlyer
[16:42] <Zuph> Nope, but there's a shot
[16:42] <Dan-K2VOL> what we're going to focus on now really is the core reason for these flights, which is collecting telemetry data that will help amateurs understand how to better ballast
[16:42] soafee-chan (~TraumaPon@124-170-111-24.dyn.iinet.net.au) joined #highaltitude.
[16:43] <SAIDias> better ballast...? what ballast control was used on K6RPT?

[16:43] Nick change: soafee-chan -> spacekitteh
[16:43] <Dan-K2VOL> the 'first to cross the atlantic' was just the sparkly fun to the mission
[16:43] <Zuph> Great circle distance will be tough to beat by anyone launching from the US, just based on how the winds blow: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/display/1323966980-16476-
[16:43] <Dan-K2VOL> k6RPT used a superpressure balloon, which doesn't require ballast
[16:44] <Dan-K2VOL> zero pressure balloons require ballast
[16:44] <Dan-K2VOL> or higher altitude than the jet stream
[16:45] <Dan-K2VOL> a superpressure balloon for a 5.7kg payload would be untenable by amateurs
[16:45] <Dan-K2VOL> however a zero pressure balloon is quite usable
[16:45] <Dan-K2VOL> for that weight
[16:45] <SAIDias> wow Dan, you seem to know all the answers
[16:45] <SAIDias> good luck
[16:46] <Dan-K2VOL> SAIDias, I have spent 6 years researching and 35 flights testing to find these tentative answers
[16:46] <Dan-K2VOL> I know some answers, but I know a lot more questions
[16:46] <Dan-K2VOL> that need yet to be answered
[16:46] <Dan-K2VOL> which is why I continue
[16:47] <Dan-K2VOL> like how much helium does the ZP lose per day? (this will let you know how much ballast you need per day)
[16:48] <Dan-K2VOL> and what is a technique that amateurs can use to create a plastic balloon capable of 3 psi superpressure?
[16:48] <SAIDias> I guess for those who care about ZP
[16:48] <Dan-K2VOL> yes, it is for the amateur scientists and explorers that this is for
[16:49] <Dan-K2VOL> for them to be able to launch experiments easier, and with more freedom, to go farther than we can now with public science knowledge
[16:49] <SAIDias> thats the GREAT thing about this hobby, lots of different avenues of interest...not one way if better then any other

[21:55] <Lunar_Lander> hello
[21:56] <Dan-K2VOL> Hi kev
[21:58] <Lunar_Lander> hi Dan-K2VOL
[21:58] <Lunar_Lander> what do you think about the transamerica-transatlantic effort?
[22:02] <Dan-K2VOL> fascinating rubber, those hwoyees are
[22:02] <Dan-K2VOL> it clearly superpressured
[22:02] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> thanks for informing me about that
[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> I told all the people that those were pinhole floaters
[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> so I have to correct myself there :)
[22:05] <Lunar_Lander> it would be interesting to cut one Hwoyee up and test the rubber properties

[23:11] <Lunar_Lander> hi daveake
[23:12] <daveake> evening :)
[23:12] <Lunar_Lander> how are you?
[23:13] <daveake> Pretty good. Chase car is back on the road after waiting at the garage for an unavailable part (eventually bought from a scrapper). Playing with nice new laptop this evening.
[23:14] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[23:14] <Lunar_Lander> I'm starting to feel better
[23:17] <daveake> Oh, wossup?
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> ah, trouble with my dad
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> and yesterday, a woman got hit by a car and I saw that from the bus
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> and today, the guy grading the homework wrote on it "you seem to show no will to complete the course"
[23:22] <daveake> Not good
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> which resulted in me calling the professor and telling him that I don't accept that
[23:22] <daveake> Good for you
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:23] <daveake> Friend of mine has been putting together some videos from my first launch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLE8h_3jdcY and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAHgxqgk4as if anyone's interested in seeing how not to do it :p
[23:23] <fsphil-laptop> people, who needs 'em
[23:25] <fsphil-laptop> hmm.. youtube has broke firefox
[23:25] <daveake> youtube, or my image?
[23:26] <fsphil-laptop> youtube lol
[23:27] <fsphil-laptop> "aaah that's that the bottle's for" ... yea I got that comment too
[23:28] <daveake> lol
[23:29] <daveake> That first launch I found quite hard work - trying to remember what to do whilst keeping everyone informed and/or busy
[23:29] <fsphil-laptop> yea I can imagine
[23:30] <fsphil-laptop> the wires!
[23:31] <daveake> I know!! I was cringing watching that
[23:31] <daveake> I changed loads of things for my next launch
