High Altitude Weather Balloon #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Thanks a ton to Andrea for letting us know more about the project they shared on Show and Tell February 22! Andrea writes:

Here a link to my G+ profile with links to couple photo galleries of the weather balloon launch https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AndreaNunziante. We used a Pi2 with a Pi camera and two shields from: http://www.pi-in-the-sky.com/ . The students did all of the coding of the Pi for the pictures taken. My YouTube channel with the launch video: https://youtu.be/o-WPwJj40I8

Here the following electronics used:

Raspberry Pi 2 Model B: (the model 3 is the newer version but the tracker does not support it yet)

Pin in the sky shield for the Pi: (this is the tracker with the APRS board 144.390Mhz (USA) Radiometrix HX1)
