I found an old LED chain that I would use for a garden, here a small circuit to insert the part with a solar panel and a 18650 battery.

I have some news, first I improved the design of the tool holder a bit. gluing the washers into the holder was too cumbersome, especially since I still had to attach a cable there. So I changed the design a little bit and created a drilling template to drill 3 holes into a washer, which is then fixed with M2 screws and an M2 cable lug. The heads of the screws do not touch the magnetic sphere. This allows the cables to be fastened securely and without adhesive. Here are some designs and photos for you.

Ein paar Neuigkeiten habe ich parat, zuerst habe ich das Design des Werkzeughalters etwas verbessert. Das kleben der unterlegscheiben in den Halter war mit zu umstĂ€ndlich, zumal ich ja noch ein Kabel dort befestigen musste. Also habe ich das Design etwas verĂ€ndert und eine Bohrschablone erstellt um 3 Löcher in eine Unterlegscheibe bohren zu können, diese wird dann mit M2 Schrauben und einen M2 Kabelschuh befestigt. Die Köpfe der schrauben berĂŒhren dabei nicht die Magnetkugel. So lassen sich die Kabel sicher und ohne Kleber befestigen. Hier ein paar Designs und Fotos fĂŒr Euch.

To complete this project I have tidied up a lot and hope for someone who will take up this idea and develop it further.

A lot of material has accumulated in the 2 years and I had to realize that some REST services no longer work. I fixed everything and refreshed the github repository, have fun with it.

After some research and after an article I read in my houseboat vacation in the south of France, I could try out the new program of the raspberry Foundation for the first time. PyTracker is based on the software from PITS (piinthesky).

It's very easy to install this Framework to my RPI Zero W:

To improve my next fly, here some points:
* use a side parachute
* use some "wirbler" https://amzn.to/2unWOn0 to prevent twisting of the ropes
* to improve the connection between Lora and GPS with the RPI, I decided to use this board: https://www.ebay.de/itm/222876330652

more news coming soon
