Geoff and Mike did some final tests and tuning over the weekend before we head over to Kingaroy for the competition next week.

The following tests were performed:

  • Imaging system uploading images in flight, and geo-referencing targets on the ground
  • Failsafe tests
  • Moved telemetry radio to reduce GPS interference
  • Re-calibrated airspeed sensor
  • Tested bottle drop as a waypoint command

We also got some new team shirts made which look great!

Thanks to Tom for getting the photos.
