The latest from Horizon’s bid to win the first ever C-PRIZE.
We are now in the final stages of assembling our prototype for testing, and have been designing a mount for the flight controller and various sensors which we plan to use on our UAV. We have also managed to 3D-print a prototype motor mount and were happy to see that it fits on our existing frame. We now plan to complete the manufacturing of these motor mounts once minor modifications have been made. At the start of the project, we made a decision to go with a cheaper build-your-own kit versus an almost ready-to-fly solution due to cost and flexibility, but we now definitely appreciate the work which goes into development of ready-to-fly kits as we attempt to get our UAV up and flying with all the required components.
