PicoAtlas VII

Aim

  • Investigate longer duration pico flight
  • Test 1.8v as a voltage for a flight.

Components

  • pAva board (Ublox6, Atmega328, RFM22b all running at 1.8v)
  • 1xAA Energizer lithium
  • 1/4 wave antenna with 2 radials

Flight 20/10/12

Initially the aim was to launch multiple balloons however due to logistical problems we could only launch a Pico flight. The night before was spent finishing off the payload especially constructing the antenna and completing the code - one of the aims was to test the pAVA board and the code was purposely simple.
