Build Update

By | June 15, 2014

Since the untimely demise of our Bushmaster airframe several weeks ago, we’ve been busy building up a second copy of it.

The wings are mostly done, the engine has been re-conditioned and the fuselage is coming along nicely. If all goes according to plan we should have the maiden flight next weekend.

This has forced us to re-jig our plans for Deliverable 3, where we are required to show 5 hours of autonomous flight. In the new plan, we will have the month of July to obtain these 5 hours.

In addition, we need to start planning our ground station setup and team roles.

All in all, it’s going to be a pretty busy couple of months!
