  • Tutorial - High Altitude Balloon Launch | about 4 years ago

    A friend of mine recently did a project just like this. To ensure he was able to recover his camera and other equipment, he attached a Spot Satellite Messenger GPS to it. In effect, it gets the GPS data and uploads it to the internet every 10 minutes. It stopped working after a certain altitude, but eventually when the balloon fell, he was able to locate it.
    It’s not a cheap thing, but it’s an idea for an all-in-one package.

No public wish lists :(
