2015 winter semester team i-Pochi 10thJanuary 25, 2016


We had our second test flight in the same gymnasium.
In our last test flight, we noticed that the aircraft experiences hard landing from time to time, so we tested a program that would make the aircraft land softly. We were planning to use an ultrasonic sonar to measure the distance from the ground and control the thrust based on that information. However, we did not have enough time to achieve that.
We also tried to add yaw rotation to the aircraft while it is in stable flight mode; we were not able to achieve that as well. This was our final time to work as a part of this seminar, but if we have a chance, we would like to keep on working on this problem on our own.
