This is an old revision of the document!

The flights were part of a mission which is covered in a TV documentation.


First flight

Flight review

The first flight was hand launched in stabilized mode and then switched to mission mode. Images were collected. The images are tagged with Björns script on the Raspberry Pi, i.e. they are GPS Tagged and the gps information is in the EXIF. The images are here available here:

GPS tagged images from the Mediterranean

Second flight

The second flight was also hand launched and it returned, but the camera cable was not connected to the pi. Therefore no images were stored.

Flight review - second flight

Third flight

During preparation of the third flight one aileron servo did not work. After unplugging and replugging the servo, it worked. The third flight was successfully launched by hand. After Poseidon reached the search pattern area, the drone made turns and crashed in the water. Because it was too far away, no efforts were made to retrieve the plane. Björn assumes that the servo connection in the aileron was broken which was the reason for the crash.

Todo: Add youtube movie from telemetry log.
