[11:16] <AndyEsser> Upu: I have one of your MAX-M8C breakouts - previously working absolutely fine. When I fired it up hooked up to a RPi (and powered via the 3.3v output from the GPIO) it all seemed to communicate ok on the UART - but never gets a fix (or ever reports >0 satellite) - had left it running for a few hours on a window cill
[11:16] <AndyEsser> Presumably I might have buggered the on-board antenna
[11:18] <Upu> or the front end on the module
[11:19] <AndyEsser> o wait, friend who took the GPS away has fired it up today and apparently it almost immediately gets a timestamp
[11:26] <Upu> its you :)
[11:28] <AndyEsser> indeed
[11:28] <AndyEsser> no fix yet though
[11:28] <AndyEsser> but told him it'll take at least like 15 minutes from a cold boot
[11:30] <gonzo_> I've had there upu boards (with chip antenna) get a time lock indoors. But then take a silly long time to get a positional lock outdoors.
[11:30] <gonzo_> reflections and interferring sigs I recon were to blame
[11:30] <AndyEsser> yea
[11:31] <gonzo_> having a foil balloon blowing around the GPS is probably not good for it seeing multiple and dopplered reflections?
[11:32] <gonzo_> and I am suspecting one of my cctv IP cams has a sprog somewhere near gps. So testing it in the garden, with clear sky, it can go 30mins without lock
[11:32] <gonzo_> and that is without reflections
[11:33] <gonzo_> if I had a portab;le specan I'd go sniffing
[11:37] <AndyEsser> sounds like something you should put on your Christmas List :P
[11:38] <gonzo_> hehe yep. Though there was a benck specan on last year's, so that could be getting greedy!
[11:40] <fsphil> they're all portable with enough effort
[11:40] <gonzo_> that is true. Mine could prob easilly be taken out with aan extension lead
[11:41] <gonzo_> (Actually there is a 16A outlet right by the suspect camera, so I'm just being excessivly lazy)
[11:41] <fsphil> hah
[11:41] <gonzo_> procrastination is an artform
[11:41] <gonzo_> well, I could make it so, if I could be bothered
[11:42] <gonzo_> nayone got any nice toys on their xmas list?
[11:42] <AndyEsser> I have zero idea what I'm getting
[11:43] <AndyEsser> told family not to bother too much beyond socks and chocolates
[11:43] <AndyEsser> meanwhile fiancee is getting stupidly expensive hair dryer and things....
[11:43] <gonzo_> I told mine to not et me spirits this time, as that don't do me any good. So they are now lost for ideas
[11:48] <AndyEsser> haha
[11:49] <AndyEsser> I would say books for xmas - but I Don't have the time
[11:49] <AndyEsser> have Scott Kelly's book sitting on my bedside table
[11:49] <AndyEsser> but not even managed to open it yet
[11:49] <AndyEsser> since my birthday last month
[11:51] <Upu> they don't work on drones btw
[11:51] <Upu> the chip antenna
[11:51] <gonzo_> I have books from last year still waiting
[11:52] <gonzo_> though I did get a copy of 'churchill's ungentlemanly war', for my b'day. And I am making the effort with that
[11:52] <Upu> https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/nGkvRXBp/20181214_115129.jpg
[11:52] <Upu> trying that this dinner time
[11:53] <chris_99> ooh, what kind of drone is that?
[11:54] <Upu> Err
[11:54] <chris_99> it looks impressive ,with the brushless motors im assuming
[11:55] <Upu> made it myself but frame is GEP-KHX5 Elegant
[11:55] <Upu> I was disappointed the DJI couldn't keep up with an ascending balloon
[11:55] <Upu> this can :)
[11:55] <daveake> heh :)
[11:56] <chris_99> nice! did you build your own RF controller for it, or..?
[11:57] <Upu> No using a FrSKY one
[11:57] <Upu> with a Taranis X9D
[12:01] <gonzo_> send it up on a balloon, with a cutdown
[12:01] <daveake> The actual plan isn't far off that :)
[12:02] <daveake> Some payload testing by dropping payload from drone
[12:02] <gonzo_> ohhh, now there's an idea.... Would a powered down drone be considered an airborne vehicle if just coming down like a stone? The fire it up for the last few 11yds, when in visual range
[12:03] <daveake> heh :)
[12:03] <gonzo_> 100yds
[12:03] <chris_99> if a drone is attached to a parachute, i wonder if you could steer it?

[12:06] <gonzo_> are you involved this time phil? With the TV being dfa/

[12:07] <gonzo_> ko, leave you to it. Ta for the heads up
[12:07] <gonzo_> tell john, if it goes well, he shall have a brie as a reward
[12:08] <craag> lol
[12:13] <craag> did I say it was me on the audio desk :/
[12:14] <cm13g09> craag: you did
[12:14] <gonzo_> trying to drop a drone via chute could be interesting, not getting it tangled. But doing a cutdown of the drone from a balloon could be more reliable. Then let it plummet till very low. Then hovver. Hopefully you can be under it as it comes donwn then fly and recover?
[12:15] <gonzo_> craag, well that was how I interpreted it. So yes you did
[12:15] <cm13g09> in fairness, gonzo_, he said he was sitting on it
[12:16] <cm13g09> not necessarily operating it
[12:20] <craag> :P
[12:20] <gonzo_> sounds uncomfy
