Time To Regroup

Combots is fast approaching and despite our best efforts the Hexacopter isn’t quite ready for battle. Members of the team will be traveling to California in October to the competition and will be taking notes on weapon systems and other requirements for battle. Our new goal is to be ready for April’s competition.

Test Flights

Here is a video from a GoPro camera mounted on the Hexacopter, This was a quick test run, reaching a top altitude of about 15 feet. During this round the only damage sustained was bent landing gear. On a test flight the next day, not filmed, we lost 2 counter clock wise blades when making a quick landing to avoid a clothesline.
