  • You said you have used this on amateur balloon projects, have you been able to receive GPS coordinates in high altitudes? where normal GPS cut off due to regulations. I believe they cut off at 60,000 ft.

  • In the video, Nick mentions that you only need to send bursts of messages. But with one you have to go to their website or to your email address to check the message. If you have two of these, then it’s like using an Xbee, you can configure one to send a message to another that is plugged into the computer and then read it.

  • Pete is not happy with his promotion reward, Nate had promised him the real deal!

  • I like Fluke products, well built and great for the labs I work at, and we buy a lot every year. So FLUKE if you can read this, if you don’t solve this problem, I would never buy a fluke product and I will make sure no one at my university buys a fluke product ever again, I will post on all blogs, I will make sure no one buys your stuff, there are better DMMs from Japan!

    And please grow up, you’re a big company and you act like a 2 year old child, why don’t you go and trademark white (cause of the notations of selector), red and black for the leads and all other colors in case you use it on your website! after you’re done registering the trademarks, go play with your barbies!

  • Hey Pete, I’m an Aero student, I’ve used GPS (the EMA-406) on my aircrafts and gotta say it sucks when you want to use the altitude data, however you are using the BMP085 sensor, so beside pressure you can get exact altitude from it. To get climb rate, I used the time from GPS and Altitude from BMP and voila!

  • There’s a paper beside the door that says Focus Here in big letter! it’s an Eye Strain Test, If you can’t read it, then you need to use this big soldering iron.

  • I want to get a live camera feedback, maybe the cmos ones Sparkfun offers! does anyone know how I can do that?
