Joe Finder Tests and Deliverable #3 Flight Hours Achieved

Last Sunday we reached another milestone accumulating a total of 6.5 hours autonomous flight. With this we met the main requirement of Deliverable #3 for the OBC requiring 5 autonomous hours with at least one flight longer than 30 min.

Following this we moved onto the next phase of testing our “Joe Finder” onboard vision system in the Viper. The initial results were looking quite promising.

The following video shows a compilation of the flights from the day including some sequences created from the onboard downward facing imaging camera.
