Once you are in a conversation focus on what you like, share it with the other caller, and ask questions about what they like. Try it out with different people to see what works best.Remember, your information is confidential, and other callers don’t know who you are. You’ll be amazed what being frank and honest can do. It may not work 100% of the time but, you’ll be surprised by how many people will appreciate your honesty.I also chose to launch later in the day than planned, which meant I didn’t need to overfill the balloon so much to keep it away from the sea.Here’s the predicted flight path: Less gas means less lift which makes it easier to tie the balloon and handle it afterwards.Initially I was going to have help from another HABber but he couldn’t make it that day, so I launched alone.To make that task easier I removed some items from the flight, allowing for a smaller balloon and less gas.The Zeroes are very small of course and even with an AA powerbank there was space to fit a video camera with its own powerbank inside the box: Next came the main Pi, with its own camera, 3G (later removed due to insufficient power from the powerbank) and UBlox USB GPS, all inside 2 of the same boxes glued together: Finally, I added a backup tracker in case the main one failed for any reason, and to provide a programmed cutdown to prevent the flight drifting too far: There was one last thing to do – my Revell model isn’t identical to the version that NASA flew, and most prominently was missing a camera.
In real life your platform could be restaurants, bars, nightclubs, etc. And there are chat lines, like ours, which is a fusion of the above mentioned and it’s to be considered a dating service too.Having tried several different action cameras in the past, my current favourite is the Gitup Git2 camera – reliable, inexpensive and plenty of options in the firmware.I combined 2 of these (one Git2 with wide-angle lens, and one Git2P with a normal lens) with some AA-powered powerbanks to extend the run time from about 90 minutes to several hours using 64GB SD cards.I also wanted live images, ideally from different viewpoints.The only reliable live image cameras I’ve used are the Pi models, and these are one-per-Pi.
