Autopilot Ground Test

Today we tested the thermopile sensors of our autopilot. They stabilize the plane in yaw, pitch, and roll by analyzing infrared heat discrepancies between the sky and land. The videos below show our test.

Over January we will mount our digital camera beneath the Big Easy's wing and start making maps of Colby's Campus.
