[11:39] <Laurenceb_> sup edmoore
[11:40] <Laurenceb_> have you ever come across any good books on high speed rotor stuff ?
[11:40] Action: Laurenceb_ is having problems with whirl modes :-/
[11:42] <SpeedEvil> In principle, ##engineering or ##mechanics might be good - but they are a bit dead. ##physics perhaps.
[11:42] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[11:42] <Laurenceb_> i doubt anyone on irc is going to help with this :-/
[11:42] <edmoore> Laurenceb_ no not really
[11:43] <edmoore> i did take a course of rotordynamics once
[11:43] <edmoore> at the magnetic bearing place i worked
[11:43] <Laurenceb_> ah
[11:43] <edmoore> we used the magnets to keep the stable when running supercritically and to stop subsynchronous whirl and so on
[11:43] <edmoore> but... this was a decade ago
[11:43] <Laurenceb_> yeah, active is easier
[11:44] <edmoore> and i only had a-level maths then so it barely went in in the first place
[11:44] <Laurenceb_> heh
[11:44] <Laurenceb_> I have a syncronous whirl mode that starts up when the chassis is quite close to the rotor in total mass
[11:44] <Laurenceb_> trying to understand it and failing :-/
[11:45] <Laurenceb_> time more detailed sim code, i guess
[11:45] <Laurenceb_> *for
[11:45] <edmoore> yeah this is basically well beyond my foo i'm afraid
[11:46] <Laurenceb_> mine too lol
[11:46] <SpeedEvil> What is the resonance of the support plate compared to the rotor speed?
[11:46] <Laurenceb_> of massively lower
[11:46] <Laurenceb_> like 10hz compared to >100hz for the rotor
[11:47] <Laurenceb_> the chassis is moving in ~antiphase like you would expect
[11:47] <Laurenceb_> i need a better camera, 240fps just doesnt cut it
[11:48] <Laurenceb_> time to go back to matlab :S
[11:48] <edmoore> could you rig up a strobe?
[11:48] <edmoore> and mix down
[11:48] <Laurenceb_> yeah thats a good plan
[11:49] <Laurenceb_> I'll see if i can get my hands on one next week
[11:49] <Laurenceb_> I know its to do with the nonideal bearings in using, but im not sure why the chassis effects it
[11:50] <edmoore> those cree 3W led things make decent strobes
[11:50] <Laurenceb_> the "bearings" are just silicone/PTFE pads, so a radial offset gives differing friction forces on the rotor
[11:50] <Laurenceb_> oooh nice plan, thanks
[11:50] <edmoore> the 'white' domestic lighting ones are a shorter wavelength led with a floursencing coating
[11:50] <edmoore> the coating take s awhile (relatively) to stop glowing
[11:50] <edmoore> much slower than the actual pure led decay anyway
[11:50] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[11:51] <edmoore> so you might want a pure wavelength led
[11:51] <Laurenceb_> I could just use a spare pin on the discovery board im using to sequence everything, simple
[11:51] <edmoore> equally the turn-off maybe well be still fast enough
[11:51] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[11:52] <Laurenceb_> other option is CO2 cartridges, pyro protractor to fire, and "air" bearings
[11:52] <Laurenceb_> but very silly to go to that at this stage I think
[11:53] <edmoore> mmm
[11:53] <Laurenceb_> also air bearings with a large gap have quite poor damping coefficient
[11:53] <edmoore> so what's the actual issue atm?
[11:53] <edmoore> it's trying to shake itself to bits?
[11:53] <Laurenceb_> yes
[11:54] <Laurenceb_> the idea is it aligns the "rotor" along its principle axis
[11:54] <Laurenceb_> you know what the rotor is :P
[11:54] <edmoore> ah yes
[11:54] <Laurenceb_> it works fine clamped to a bench
[11:54] <edmoore> so just affixed at the bottom
[11:54] <edmoore> and sort of caged at the top
[11:54] <edmoore> but non contact
[11:54] <Laurenceb_> suspended from ceiling it goes into whirl mode
[11:56] Nick change: fl_0 -> fl_0|afk
[11:56] <edmoore> so it wants to be rotating about an axis with a higher MoI?
[11:56] <Laurenceb_> no
[11:56] <Laurenceb_> its fine rotating about the one with smallest MoI
[11:57] <Laurenceb_> but theres a nasty interaction between the bearings and chassis
[11:57] <Laurenceb_> I'm not sure if this is even a whirl mode
[11:57] <Laurenceb_> or a whip mode instead
[11:57] <Laurenceb_> its a CoM oscillation I'm seeing
[11:58] <Laurenceb_> whirl modes all seem to be well damped as my simple sim code would suggest
[11:58] <Laurenceb_> hmm I'll grab some frames from the video
[11:59] <Laurenceb_> if i can remeber how to use ffmpeg on headless file server :-/
[12:07] <Laurenceb_> lol jpeg quality

[12:09] <Laurenceb_> first <foo> in "space"
[12:09] <Laurenceb_> nice burst
[12:10] <Laurenceb_> so that imgur link is two consecutive frames as its oscillating
[12:10] <Laurenceb_> there seems to be little phase offset between the top and bottom
[12:10] <Laurenceb_> more of a CoM coupling effect
[12:12] <edmoore> one day soon there <assorted bullshit> in space meme will die
[12:12] <edmoore> one day
[12:12] <edmoore> the*
[12:16] <Laurenceb_> hmm
[12:16] <Laurenceb_> matlab says I've screwed it up with the "bearing" design
[12:17] <Laurenceb_> with a rigid chassis, I need friction coefficient <0.06
[12:17] <Laurenceb_> thats ballpark PTFE dynamic friction
[12:18] <Laurenceb_> so it probably only works by a small margin
[12:19] <Laurenceb_> I niavely assumed it was stable as it runs with an M4 bolt inside or whilst being hit with a mallet, but i think those are testing different aspects of the damping
[12:20] <Laurenceb_> tho I've seen film of early jet engines being hit with a mallet :P

[12:24] <Laurenceb_> not rotor stability (at least not just stability)
[12:25] <Laurenceb_> there is one way to make this work according to sim code
[12:25] <Laurenceb_> CO2 injection into the bearing pads

[15:08] <infaddict> hi guys, since upgrading to Arduino software 1.6.0 I cant seem to upload my code to the board. getting stk500_getsync() not in sync, programmer not responding error
[15:08] <infaddict> any ideas? I had to reset my board and port options after upgrade.
[15:10] <edmoore> defoinitely got the right arduino board and comms port set up in the new ide?
[15:10] <edmoore> tools - board - [arduino type]
[15:10] <edmoore> tools - port - ttyXXXX (or COMx or whatever)
[15:11] <infaddict> yer i have Mini or Mini Pro, then I've chose 3.3V 8Hmz. which matches my board of a Arduino mini pro 3.3v
[15:11] <infaddict> then I've chosen the serial usb port (which vanishes if i unplug so think its the right one)
[15:11] <infaddict> the port is different name to what is was before software upgrade however
[15:12] <edmoore> hmm, we'll i'd try the old port if it's still an option although it sounds like you've idenitified that this is the right one
[15:12] <infaddict> its weird just restarting GUI again
[15:13] <infaddict> ha and now it magically works without me changing anything. after 2 GUI restarts! thx for help edmoore
[15:13] <edmoore> lol
[15:13] <edmoore> gotta love computers
[15:14] <infaddict> the arduino upgrade basically wipes out all settings
[15:14] <infaddict> crap
[15:14] <infaddict> whoooa now its looping my setup() as if the board is restarting itself. same code that worked fine before.
[15:15] <infaddict> wtf
[15:15] <Laurenceb_> edmoore: I fail at logic
[15:15] <Laurenceb_> http://www.me.utexas.edu/~bryant/courses/me383s/DownloadFiles/LectureNotes/BoundaryLubrication.pdf
[15:16] <Laurenceb_> first page, all I need is the correct lubricant
[15:16] <Laurenceb_> 2 orders of magnitude reduction in friction -> two orders of magnitude more stability margin
[15:17] <edmoore> wow
[15:17] <edmoore> i know zero about all this
[15:18] Nick change: mheld_ -> mheld
[15:20] <Laurenceb_> heh, it looks useful knowledge
[15:20] <infaddict> so my perfectly stable code (in earlier version) now causes the board to restart immediately in the main loop(). Time to start commenting things out!
[15:21] <Ian_> Confirm for me infaddict that it's not possible to have old and new IDE on the same computer. On Linux "arduino" directory is where the programs reside and "Arduino-1.5.7" the IDE version. Implying that "Arduino-1.6.x" will be the new one. Gotta play clever to preserve anything sensitive /
[15:22] <infaddict> Ian_: not sure, I'm on OSX so the whole thing is a packaged application file
[15:22] <infaddict> Guessing I could rename the application and have 2 versions
[15:22] <Ian_> ".arduino" has an old preferences.txt ".arduino15" has a preferences.txt which is current and I assume that if I upgraded to the latest I would have a ".arduino16" preferences.txt
[15:23] <Ian_> I know that any change is likely to have us tearing hair out as they screw around with everything that we thought we knew already . . .
[15:24] <Ian_> I don't know what advantages 1.6 bring with it, but I dread what will be changed and disenfranchise me for the next week and more if I upgrade now.
[15:26] <Ian_> Pity the poor guy on a project deadline that steps into the noose and finds himself in a tree suspended by an ankle over a pit of sharp stakes. Prefer bitter and steaks personally :)
[15:27] <infaddict> lol
[15:27] <Ian_> indeed
[15:27] <Ian_> Good luck
[15:27] <infaddict> narrowed the restart down to a few GPS calls so soon will find out exactly which statement
[15:27] <infaddict> as i say none of this code has changed
[15:27] <edmoore> Ian_, bitter and steak is an absolutely splendid idea
[15:28] <Ian_> Brings the conference to mind
[15:28] <edmoore> infaddict, does your new board setting definitely have the same clock speed as the old one?
[15:29] <infaddict> cant actually remember exact wording of old GUI choice (i set it once 4 months ago and left it)... but pretty sure old GUI did NOT have 2 separate menus for board and speed like new one does
[15:30] <infaddict> so in new GUI you choose your board type, then in a separate menu you choose the processor and clock speed
[15:30] <Ian_> A couple of years ago memcheck86+ distributed on the SUSE release was wonk. No changes at all for quite a while but it was definitely bent. A few months later the truth started to leak out. The compiler used was a newer version of GCC and somehow it optimised registers differently and at least in my case had two computers do a round trip to eBuyer.
[15:31] <Ian_> Who would have thought.
[15:32] <Ian_> The speed and board parameters were always part of boards.txt, definitely not separate options. You would have to make a second board definition if you wanted two different speeds.
[15:33] <Ian_> That actually sounds like a bit more flexibility in the new version, although not exactly helpful for yourself.
[15:34] <infaddict> I think its an interrupt issue
[15:34] <infaddict> just proving it by disabling interrupts
[15:34] <Ian_> There be dragons . . . not fully interrupt savvy here yet.
[15:34] <infaddict> doh i've disproved it

[15:53] <infaddict> i might just go back to old version ;-/
[15:55] <Ian_> I think that there is probably a case for keeping the original IDE that a project was developed using, otherwise you get bitten by a variety of unexpected decisions taken by the IDE developers who are probably not backwardly compatible themselves.
[15:56] <Ian_> It certainly helps the understanding when you have to get your head under the hood to fix something that wasn't broken previously.

[16:20] <infaddict> depends if your goal is the end result or the journey
[16:20] <edmoore> i'm sure my neighbour is coming apart
[16:20] <infaddict> for kids it should be a bit of both imho
[16:21] <edmoore> my walls are thick but i can hear her doing some very strange song/wail through the wall
[16:21] <infaddict> lol edmoore
[16:22] <infaddict> ive tracked my issue down to a single sprintf statement!
[16:22] <infaddict> sprintf(checkSumStr, "*%04X\n", checkSum); // Format the checksum correctly
[16:23] <infaddict> this used to work. now it causes a board restart!
[16:23] <bradfirj> That's an impressive bug
[16:23] <mfa298> infaddict: buffer overflow perhaps, how big is checkSumStr?
[16:23] <bradfirj> Is it all printfs or just that one
[16:24] <infaddict> just that 1... trial and error commenting stuff out has narrowed it to this one line
[16:24] <infaddict> checking that mfa298...
[16:24] <bradfirj> I had a bug on an AVR where when I started the UART up the board reset, turned out the Vcc line was a bad joint and powering up any peripherals was causing it to only barely function
[16:24] <bradfirj> bringing the uart up tipped it over into brownout
[16:24] <infaddict> char checkSumStr[5+1];
[16:25] <daveake> too small
[16:25] <mfa298> also snprintf is better, you also pass the the size of the string so it so you shouldn't get overruns
[16:25] <gonzo_nb> is the * being interpreted as a formatting param, rather than just a bit of text?
[16:25] <infaddict> checksum is asterisk then 4 digits then newline. so isnt that 6 chars?
[16:25] <daveake> * (1) + %04X (4) + \n (1) + NULL (1) = 7
[16:26] <infaddict> aha null
[16:26] <infaddict> i didnt know about the null. my bad.
[16:26] <infaddict> i therefore probably have this issue in other strings too
[16:26] <daveake> likely
[16:27] <infaddict> so size should be content+2?
[16:27] <daveake> +1
[16:27] <daveake> content is 6
[16:27] <bradfirj> I would try and keep it dynamic at all times though, hardcoding numbers == bad
[16:27] <daveake> 1 + 4 + 1
[16:27] <infaddict> right ok, guess it depends if u count the \n as content
[16:27] <daveake> it is content
[16:28] <infaddict> ok thx all, will recheck all my code now
[16:28] <infaddict> i'd expect a memory leak or bad data, not a restart but there you go!
[16:31] <gonzo_nb> depends what it was overruning into
[16:32] <mfa298> infaddict: depends on what you're overwriting. You could be hitting something vital to it normally running properly, or it could be leading to somethign else then falling over.
[16:32] <infaddict> very true
[16:32] <infaddict> weird it didnt happen on old version of GUI tho. same code, same wrong length on string.
[16:33] <mfa298> the compiler may have put the variable in a different bit of memory or optimised things slightly differently
[16:33] <daveake> GUI? You mean IDE? Anyway a change in the compiler may well make it crash or not crash
[16:33] <infaddict> yer sry the IDE
[16:33] <infaddict> i upgraded today and it stopped working with this bug
[16:34] <gonzo_nb> good job. you msy have not found it
[16:34] <infaddict> yep always glad to find bugs
[16:34] <mfa298> the code on the actual chip is dependant on the source code you've written and the compiler (what happens as part of the build & program process)
[16:35] <daveake> Quite likely it's updated libraries that have moved stuff around
[16:35] <infaddict> yep, really glad i added some code to re-do flight mode every 5 mins. otherwise i might not have spotted this.
[16:36] <infaddict> good news is the flight mode code works (<100ms) and doesnt interrupt lock/fix

[19:23] <mfa298> hardware serial is likely to be the best solution - although you may need to remove the gps to program the arduino
[19:24] <hiflyer> https://www.adafruit.com/products/746
[19:28] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Software or Hardware ? "These modules use TTL serial to communicate, 2 pins are required to

[19:37] <hiflyer> apologies if I'm being stupid here but is there any documentation on HardwareSerial i.e. how it is constructed?
[19:39] <mfa298> interesting that adafruit gps page makes no mention of maximum altitude
[19:39] <edmoore> hiflyer, yes there should be on the arduino website
[19:40] <edmoore> it's the default really, and it's software serial that's the odd and painful thing to use
[19:40] <craag> mfa298: Video says 50km..
[19:40] <craag> yeah right :P
[19:41] <mfa298> the linked datasheet pdf (v3) says 18km
[19:41] <craag> ha
[19:41] <hiflyer> thanks edmoore - do i have to connect the gps to pins 0 and 1 on the uno?
[19:41] <edmoore> i'm not sure, I don't use arduinos

[19:46] <hiflyer> urghh - anyone know what this means " conversion from 'HardwareSerial' to non-scalar type 'SoftwareSerial' requested"?
[19:47] <hiflyer> ah nvm - just made a stupid mistake
[19:47] <hiflyer> ill be quiet now :)
[19:49] <edmoore> be prepared for possibly having to get hands a bit dirty here
[19:49] <edmoore> the jump from beginner to novice is the steepest bit of the learning curve
[19:49] <mfa298> some might say the mistake is using "arduino". It's a higher learning curve but leaving the arduino wrappers behind will give you more power with how the device works
[19:51] <hiflyer> ive done a bit of c++ programming for the last few years but its a bit of a shock having to use c functions (snprintf etc)

[22:24] <amell> For some reason this M8N gps module isnt able to see glonass sats. ive checked the config - all looks correct. any ideas?

[22:35] <Upu> where did you get it ?
[22:35] <Upu> and what antenna is on it ?
[22:35] <amell> ebay for a quadcopter - its a patch antenna.
[22:36] <amell> im wondering if the antenna is too narrow bandwidth
[22:36] <Upu> possibly
[22:36] <Upu> or it may not be a genuine 8 series internally
[22:36] <Upu> more likely to be the antenna
[22:36] <amell> the config has glonass enabled.
[22:36] <amell> the chip inside sure looks like ublox one
[22:37] <Upu> what number is on it ?
[22:37] <amell> let me open it up.
[22:38] <amell> which number? theres a lot of them

[23:09] <Upu> yeah any of mine will do glonass
[23:09] <Upu> you have to take the can off the GPS
[23:09] <amell> to get to the antenna?
[23:10] <Upu> probably the antenna causing your issues as that looks genuine
[23:10] <Upu> 413002247820800
[23:10] <Upu> serial no
[23:10] <amell> ok.
[23:10] <amell> it has to fit in quadcopter dome, so needs to be quite thin
[23:11] <Upu> which quad copter ?
[23:11] <amell> mine :)
[23:11] <amell> homebuild.
[23:11] <Upu> ah ok
[23:11] <Upu> I know people have been swapping antenas out for Taoglas Glonass ones I sell
[23:12] <Upu> any how bed time night all
[23:12] <amell> oh really?
[23:12] <amell> i will look at the site, see if i can find the dimensions
[23:15] <amell> yeah that taoglas looks exactly right
