The team has designed and built their own Failsafe Device, learning new skills in electronic and circuit board design in the process.
The Failsafe Device is a safety feature of that automatically crashes the plane if the Autopilot system locks up or stops sending a heartbeat signal. This is required by the rules of the competition.
Many thanks to Jack Pittar from CanberraUAV for his advice in the design process.
Note: We have a few spare PCB’s printed which we would be happy to provide to other OBC teams at cost value.
