New motor drive board finished – transistor version works like a charm. Didn’t have lift on Saturday (didn’t know we’d be quite ready for it), but we fired the engine at low pressure – worked great. Ordering the lift for Tuesday, will attempt hover. Differential pressure transducer still not back from Omega (they aren’t telling us its status), so we probably won’t be doing a boosted hop until we get it back. Hopefully that will be soon.

Also, wound engine re-wrapped with fiberglass to cover all cracks and reinforce. We’ll probably be refiring that soon, possibly on Tuesday if we have time after the hover operations.

If you havn’t noticed yet we moved the Armadillo Aerospace Topic into a new forum dedicated to Armadillo Aerospace.
