Reviving my thread from July. I've given up on my Tegra Note. it refuses to
take a charge again. I did a little research and found a Galaxy Tab A 7" at
Best Buy for $120.
One thing that caught my eye is that it has an "outdoor" mode to boost the
display brightness for up to 15 minutes at a time.
I'm heading to October Skies at Tripoli Central California tomorrow. I'll
let you all know how it works out.
I recently upgraded to AltOS 1.8.2
I uploaded some flight data yesterday and when I try to export to a KML
file, the file size is 0 KB. When I attempt to open KML file, I get the
"No results - KML file empty"
Have you seen this problem or is anyone else experiencing this problem?
Some of you have seen the 3D-printed mounting brackets Keith and I use
to mount a TeleBT on the boom of an Arrow yagi antenna, and asked about
them. They do a great job of keeping your TeleBT from flopping around
on the boom, working the SMA connector loose, etc.
This bracket was actually designed by my son, Robert Garbee, now in his
second year as a mechanical engineering student at Georgia Tech. He
recently updated the design to make it stronger and easier to reproduce
reliably, and I am happy to report that the new version worked out great
for me at an NCR launch this weekend!
We've just published the design as both a FreeCAD file and a
ready-to-print STL file, using the Creative Commons CC-by-SA license.
If you have a TeleBT and access to a 3D printer, feel free to print one
yourself! I've also made them available for sale in my store.
For full details, see:
I've also published the STL file on Thingiverse for those of you who
prefer that interface and tool set:
