The wait continues [patiently]

There have not been tracking updates since Silk’s 02/01/2008, 2:09 a.m. departure from Cerritos, California. In the meantime, I picked up the 2 switches and installed them in the control tube–neat! I may post a picture once I have daylight on Tuesday, 02/05. It has the potential to be very busy day.

While waiting, I’m pondering operating my strobe off a solar powered battery. I thought of this early on, but did not find components that I think are suitable. I now have [a Solio Hybrid 1000 Solar Charger & DC voltage coverter] and it is a matter of finding a good location for the solar cells. I’m likely to modify to better adapt to my setup. Stay tuned…

Also, I’ve spoken with Karl of ZZip Designs to see if he has a 700 kit–not directly, but he has fairing that he think will work. I have a Zzipper fairing on my RANS Stratus XP. Again, stay tuned…
