SPOT GPS

I went out and bought a Spot gps(the one i posted about previously) and found that I have to pay 100$ and to use it. Also to get it to track its position every 10 min. is and extra 50$.

Design Brief

I just started to get my ideas down on paper, making my first design brief. It needs some work but you have to start somewhere!

Solar charger

 

I was making a solar charger to help keep the camera charged in flight but the panel i found out i was using wasn’t putting out enough amps to charge the camera or a phone. So…NOTE TO SELF talk to Mr.Better about a panel that will put out 1amp (100mA) minimum.

Mentor

So many questions and finding many without answers, I cant wait until I can find a mentor to help me out! Possibly a  local weather station?

Found a good way to track via GPS

could get a little pricey but… if I can get a grant from Rei they sell these as well as valuable camera equipment I could defiantly use!

Grants!

Trying to get a grant to help push for this project to be a little more technology advanced. Possible organisations…
