UAV Forge Spring Week 4: Prototyping and Flight test

kdspauld 2017-2018 UAV Forge

This week was largely a continuation on the work being done in the previous week. The most significant to emerge was the mounting of avionics components for the flight test on Sunday. This comes with some difficulty as the plane was damaged in an accident earlier this week. It sustained damage in the tail in the form of a hairline fracture and some shear. The propeller was also broken. Structures has been fixing the damage while simultaneously mounting the avionics and continuing to create a payload release mechanism, which is nearing completion.

The avionics team has been overall been working on similar issues to the week previous and is helping integrate the systems into the Aeroworks GT.
