Playing with electronics again.

Nothing serious, trying to catch up on some loose ends. One of the fun things I tested today was seeing how low my input voltage can go before the output (5 Volt) collapses. The background to this is that initially when building Jeti sensors, I used step-down converters to allow the use of 2S battery … Read more

Just another relaxing day

I finally reached D-Day (Departure-Day) and have been taking it easy the last few weeks. Easy as in not spending time on modelling activities, but more time on ‘Life’ things. But, since a few days, Autumn seems to have arrived, so a good time to warm-up the soldering iron to keep the man-cave warm. One … Read more

today’s harvest done

This series has an extra voltage regulator, I have a feeling the version that runs straight on the 5V from the receiver is a bit too sensitive to voltage fluctuations. These ones are to be fed from a 2S Lipo or LiFe supply. Time will tell if I am right ;-

Altitude and Vario’s

I received some chips last week, they are to be used in a VarioGPS unit for Jeti. I’ve build around a dozen of these things now, and so far I have had no real issues. So what happened? As always with stuff from ‘the east’ you never know what you get. But I am jumping … Read more
