High Altitude Ballooning
Fling High Altitude balloons is fun over the past 2 years I saw quite a lot of Balloon’s fly and I was involved in the past 2 flights of Secunda Radio Armature club with their Balloon’s, We are currently involving schools to fly since projects with us on the next mission on 6 October. I have developed a Microcontroller for schools to do data logging and it can also be used as a flight computer for a High altitude balloon. There will soon be more information on the Project on HABspace.net
The School project will take the leaners thru a Basic electronics course then we will learn them to solder and build there one microcontroller and data logger with a programming course for the controller. The final reword is to fly the project with the club in October.
