Work is continuing on our build, with virtually all parts now in our hands. We hope to have our craft up and flying within the next week, though testing of our station-keeping algorithms has been continuing on a smaller testbed. Parallel to this, development of updated flight control algorithms to fully utilise our frame configuration is in progress, though staring at lines of code for hours on end can certainly be a mind-numbing experience!
