Kingaroy Day 2 (OBC T -1 days)

By | September 21, 2014

Today was mostly spent doing systems tests, including a 4.5km datalink test at Kingaroy airport (the 900MHz link worked quite well, the 5.8 GHz link was coming in and out as expected), tuning the antenna tracker and engine runs.

We also did some recon of the search area. It looks a little greener this time around, but is still very much furrowed red soil.

The remaining members of our team arrived in the afternoon and we even came across some other UAV teams around town.

Our house has now turned into a UAV workshop, with radio antennas, UAV chassis and many cables scattered around the house!

Tomorrow will be the first official day of the OBC where we are very much looking forward to meeting all the other teams
