June 6 test

This is a simple open-loop test. It runs purely on timing:
  1. Five second delay after reset
  2. Throttle up and wait two seconds
  3. Turn hard right and wait one second
  4. Straighten up and wait for one second
  5. Throttle down
This is all exactly the same hardware as last year, except for the breadboard and the wire connecting the GPS. Last year I failed because the board shook apart. This year I am using a soldered main board. As a result, I have lots of confidence in the software, which wanted to turn, but couldn't because the wire shook loose. I'll start testing actual navigation, gudance, and control next week.
