As we quickly approach Milestone 3 (the live demonstration) at the end of the month, the team has been hard at work building at night, and outdoor flight testing in the few hours between the end of the work day and sunset.
Yesterday, we tested the transition from manual to stabilize modes with great success. This weekend, we will be testing out waypoint navigation and VTOL capabilities. As in Milestone 2, we have two vehicles– one dedicated to testing forward flight and another for testing VTOL, both under manual and autopilot control. Once we test these systems separately, we will be combining systems. Fingers crossed for good flying weather!
