Weather balloon payload development and having a fun time doing it.
MakerLabs is going to participate more directly in the next weather balloon launch that Binaryspace launches on 4 August 2018 @ Deneysville. The callsign is Binary04.
MakerLabs’s payload has two components. Radio repeater and a community goal of a data acquisition module. The payload will include a temperature and humidity sensor that will store data using a data logger module. Everything will be controlled using a Arduino nano and powered with a LiPo 3.3v battery.
Optional sensors that can be included depending on how many participants assist in the build can include:
Anyone that wants to participate in the project join us at MakerLabs and learn about electronics, robots, additive manufacturing, ham radio and even some magic the gathering if you feel brave.
So join us next time and have a blast doing learning all kinds of maker stuff.
Find us on meetup for regular meeting details.

Makerlabs is a comunity of makers, of open software(opensource) and open hardware. Home to 3D printing, Repraps, electronics, Arduino, RaspberryPie, Python and a bit of beer b…
Thomas Sanladerer has been doing stuff with 3D Printing for a long time and can be seen as an expert on the matter.
With his latest guide to build a Prusa Mk2 guide anyone can build a 3D printer as cheap as possible. On his guide he has the build items and where to buy them. He has also added some videos on the builds.
The build continues and my parts are still in the mail. Ooh well it will happen soon.
