Something I posted for the locals:

It's up !

Approaching 10,000 feet.


If you want to read the telemetry, read the RAW PACKETS on either of the pages below.

The altitude in FEET follows the “A=”.

To calculate the battery voltage (assuming it's the same as last time):
    Take the HEX number after the “V”.
    Convert to decimal.
    Multiply by 0.009682 to get volts.

 Example V244 = 5.615648 Volts
     244 hex = 580
If you want to do it manually, The digit weights are 256, 16, 1
Ao 244 is:
     2 x 256  + 4 x 16  + 4
