It has been a while since the last post, so I thought it would be a good idea to provide an update in the progress of the project.
- The application for flight is still with CASA/AirServices.
- Some good progress has been made in regards to Spot/Gimbal mechanism. A gimbal contraption has been constructed almost completely out of PVC pipe to allow the Spot Messenger to be orientated correctly (upwards), regardless of the orientation of the payload.
Since the project has changed quite a bit, I’ve decided to do up a short video of the payload systems. Please find below.
