Test Flight 1

Posted on the Sparkfun forum:

I am building a helicopter which is almost certain to win the low altitude competition, except if it is facing another helicopter. I basically just chopped all the electronics out of an existing helicopter, leaving the battery, motors, and airframe. I replaced the electronics with a Logomatic and Arduino-based motor controller, and just got the thing in the air today :D Unfortunately, it is open-loop and still not controllable, but I still have time, right? Months and months, right?
