Phew! Hiking up 1,200 meters in a few hours is tiring. Luckily the warm hospitality of the people of Astam gave me the energy to do some testing up here. Garuda functioned enough to get it in the air, but had some instability. I sense that one of the motors were damaged in transit but I might be able to replace it when I get back to Kathmandu.
