I ended up with a couple of digital wind sensors because logging the wind speed at a KAP rig seemed like a really appropriate thing to do. I connected a Modern Device Wind Sensor (Rev. P) to my SkyPod GPS logger and lofted it with a new seven foot Rokkaku. The wind data are very noisy, so I am trying to figure out why, but it looks like the sensor might be capable of returning good data. I posted some details about the flight at Public Lab
Above: The sensor has a somewhat delicate loop extension and it's hard to protect that without interfering with the wind readings.
Above: A 10-observation running mean (60 second averages) makes the result look really reasonable. Some more testing is needed to figure out what causes all the noise.
Above: While the SkyPod was logging data, the Canon EOS M was taking 900 photos, 33 of which are stitched into this spherical panorama of the Bread Loaf Campus of Middlebury College, Vermont.
