Revision as of 17:03, 17 July 2011

  • make outline of how things fit into the compartments
  • enlarge hole for video camera so that there is not plastics in the field of view
  • mount canon camera to faceplate
  • X prepare new Y adapter (done, although the pins have to be bent a bit

for safe contact!)

  • assemble the antenna for GPRS
  • antenna for video * Best thing it to just have the transmitter and the antenna inside one of
 the compartments                                                                                                                             
  • assemble GPRS GPS tracking system (details only known to Brian etc.)
  • assemble/mount phone
  • connect blinking circuit to the three position lights
  * have Mark have a look at the circuit                                                                                                      
  * mount battery holders                                                                                                               * Finding about blinking circuit: It is just switching on/off two fully                                                                     
 charged AA cells and is certainly not the best way to do it. All three LEDs
 on the payload are connected in parallel.
  • isolate intervalometer electrically
  • maybe buy Kapton tape(?)
  • buy velcro for mounting electronics in box
  • buy helium tank
  • mount video equipment
  • mount 12V power supply
  • fix the position of the video camera (needs to get into launch checklist!)
  • 2x cinch male-male adapters
  • glue plastic sheets that came loose
  • charge video battery fully and measure full voltage
  • replace batteries in blinker before launch (shorting)
  • replace canon camera battery
  • put this list onto the wiki, also the launch prep check list
  • access list
  • put failed minimal launch data (track on google maps etc.) onto the wiki
