It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Since I returned to work after my Vacation it’s all been about adapting. I decided I didn’t want to work in a lab where all the air circulates through one HVAC. I worked from home as long as I could on Professional Development assignments and updating documentation. My employer was running out of work at home assignments and I was asked to return to the lab or take a leave of absence. During the month of July I started to look for an opportunity where I can work at home as a Linux Systems Engineer and after a long interview process I got an offer!
Last week I flashed an old Sparky flight controller with iNAV 2.5.1 firmware, attached a Mini uBlox GPS to it and installed it in a Zohd Nano Talon EVO 2. The manual maiden flight went well. The trims didn’t need adjusting, it flew perfectly. Last Monday I installed a RunCAM 2 4k Camera. The goal of this second flight was to test the camera, test iNAV Holding Pattern mode, and test high speed full throttle passes. Well Cell #1 in the 2200mah 3C battery failed during the second full throttle pass.
The replacement vtail stabilizer will be is expected to arrive next Wednesday. I have retired that battery. I’ve got a new 3300ma 3C battery for the next flight.
