1100 Using: Hot Air

This is a student-built solar tetroon using our classic \'Sky Diamond\' design. The balloon will be launched with a partial helium fill and then transition to a solar Montgolfiere regime. APRS is provided by a BigRedBee tracker and the payload includes a small digital camcorder. This will be GPA\'s first flight in several years.

The Trident Amateur Radio Club (Tom Lufkin) is hosting this launch for students at the Palmetto Scholars Academy (Kellye Voigt). The students have designed sophisticated experiments involving a variety of metals. The experiments are managed in flight by an Arduino microcontroller programmed by the students. The Arduino samples each metal and logs conductivity, temperature and pressure throughout the flight.
