Getting mid-air launching right

By | August 21, 2019

Peter and Jack have been working hard on repairing and modifying the Boomerang and launch mechanism to make the Quad launching reliable. They have fitted a servo hold / release mechanism for the Quad which solves the problems that we had last week where the Quad was blown off the Boomerang by the prop wash and air flow. Combined with Peter’s ‘punch’ launch code this is now working well and reliably. One step closer to saving Outback Joe in the 2020 Medical Rescue UAV Challenge!
