After a successful flight test last Sunday (February 11) which collected telemetry and tested the fly-by-wire functionality of the PixHawk on the Sig-T, the team has been preparing for further testing on the Sig-T and are researching the many kit planes and their potential to be modified to better suit the mission presented by Auvsi Suas. Also, the project partnered with Cha! For Tea and had a fundraising event on Valentine’s Day which unfortunately did not attract enough people for the project to receive any money.
Work is now being done on constructing a mount for the camera and components within the Sig-T to take mission photos for the object detection software. Dummy objects were built according the the mission specifications.
Otherwise, progress continues as normal and is on track.
