UAV Build April 08 Update

UAV Integration work well underway

The Multiplex Funjet based airframe is essentially complete and the modifications necessary to permit the easy installation and removal of the turtle deck are complete.  Motor\speed controller are fitted and the servo leads all now terminate in Molex PicoBlade connectors.

Integration work is now well underway and last night the Tiny 2.1 powered aircraft booted for the first time. The servos immediately chattered themselves crazy.  Without the manual radio element, the UAV falls into a default mode of autonomous control.  Not ideal when the craft is sitting on the bench!

IR sensors are connected and the Gyro will follow soon along with the radio modem and the USB loader cable.  The Project gallery is here.
