I suspect that this Wednesday will not be a meeting, or at least not one
with a critical mass of the folks we should have on hand.  I'm thinking
it would be good to have avionics, software, IMU, and mechanical folks
on hand.

I'll clean up my analyses and be ready to present what I've done and
discuss the interpretations for the 11/28 meeting.

If the data I'm using is correct (no post processing issues) then I
suspect that the noisy x/y data is a function of a somewhat loose IMU or
something rattling in the payload and mechanical coupling in the x/y
axes, or data lose of dropped samples.
