Tethered Flight Test 1

A short duration hovering test hop was conducted.

Objectives for the test were:

  1.  Test the ground, flight command and data logging systems. 
  2.  Demonstrate that the vehicle has sufficient thrust to actually liftoff. 
  3.  Record orientation data to see how the IMU coped with the flight

All objectives were successfully achieved.

The photo below shows the vehicle at the point of lift off. Video will be posted shortly.
