Hello…. Could you please help me with a problem I'm having setting up ADAFRUIT components. I purchased adafruit products through Sky Probe one of your retailers (mistake) and can't them them to give me any direction / help regarding how the adafruit components work together. These components will be sent to near space (90k ft) in a capsule / weather balloon to retrieve accurate temp, gps, pressure data.
Needed: Instruction on how the UNO, GPS Breakout and BMP085 piece together (wiring schematic) and how they are powered. (I've seen the adafruit website and tutorials and still not sure of the total process).
a. Can the UNO, GPS Breakout and BMP085 be powered by a 9v battery ???
b. What gauge wire should i use to connect UNO, GPS Breakout, BMP085 together ???
c. Do i mount everything to a bread board then it's complete and ready to go ???
d. Whats the best way to test if the system is working ???
e. Will the ada components be able to take accurate readings through the styrofoam ???
f. What are your thoughts on securing the ada system in the capsule (modified styrofoam cooler) for flight ??? Can i tape them down or will that change or damage readings ???
