1798Re: [GPSL] Project: Traveler to fly this morning
- Nov 1, 2005Hi Zack,
Yeah, a secondary motto for balloonacy might be "a little more heat".
What I find ironic about the excess of zeal that went into the PT's
pea-power design is that the GPS itself consumes way more power all
by itself than does a vanilla TT3 and DJC1.
Which opens the possibility of coupling heat from the GPS into the PT?

One thing to keep in mind, this was the first Project: Traveler flight
to not have a single linear regulator on board. In a certain respect,
I think that amateur ballooning has come to depend on inefficient
circuits to provide self-heating.
