We are putting the finishing touches on the SUMO aircraft. They will be sent out shortly to Belgingur.
Ingi Mar Jónsson successfully defended his BSc thesis in Mechanical and energy engineering in October 2013. He designed and fabricated a camera module for the Gavia AUV owned by the research group of Prof. Gunnar Stefánsson at the University of Iceland. The module is fully integrated with the Gavia AUV and holds a Canon D5 camera which is controlled through a Raspberry Pi computer. The module is still under development and it is planned to do testing at sea next spring.
Finally we got good enough weather for flying, we took out Funjet and Phantom wing to test with Paparazzi autopilot and our new gopro camera. Close the mountain Esja we flew Funjet in spiral up to 1500 meters and the signal was still strong. The video above is from the Phantom circling up to 1000m altitude. The wing is a little bit unstable and needs some PID adjustment, the Funjet was really stable.
