Hardware

  • Debugged the I2C bus, which was giving us problems
    • BL Ctrl boards had red lights, which wouldn't go away
    • It turned out the I2C was short-circuited
      • The problem was one of the BL Ctrl boards, which had C and D of the I2C hookups shorted.
      • The IC had a piece of metal between two pins, which we removed.
  • Dry test of electronics successful
  • Heat shrink'd the BL Ctrl boards and arms
  • Found places to attach power and switch wires
  • Zip tied wires down
  • Added rotors

Maiden Flight!

  • Took the quadrotor outside the UC and flew it!
