deployment Turned glider around for recovery. Battery getting low and uncertain conditions nearshore. Let optics sample away, and hope we can get into next week for recovery.

dkaragon
deployment Glider not swimming very quickly. Wondering if this is due to ru25d prototype wings (must check that this glider indeed has those wings).

Turning around soon for recovery, and may issue a new SBD that monitors heading better (as a result of ru16's situation).

dkaragon
deployment Altimeter discrepancy of 1-2 m on segment ru15_2011_244_3_122_sbd

Backed off altitude to 4.25 m off from 3.5 m.

Good segment to use if you want absolute depth of water measurement since we hit bottom.

deployment Sped glider up on climbs(1000/-150) hopefully explains why it did a circle.

dkaragon
deployment Slowed glider down (+- 180 cc), wobbling quite a bit on yo's in roll and heading. Will see if that helps. 2 hour missions.
