This video includes 3 days worth of footage. I have been setting up a raspberry pi to transmit video data from four cameras down to a ground station. Additionally I put all of the electronics that would go in the big octacopter, Guardian, into a quadcopter to make sure nothing was malfunctioning. During the flight day the battery wasn't secured properly and the drone crashed after destabilizing. I spent a bit of time fixing it but it has passed all of the calibration tests. One of the ESCs was reversed and got fried while testing the power on the Octacopter. Luckily a safety feature in the power distribution board saved the rest of them. I ship the drone out 3 weeks ahead of my departure, meaning I only have a week left to finish everything.
