Flight computer test!

Our lead programmers learned the ins and outs of using the Microchip microcontroller programming environment, and we can happily report that our flight computer has passed the first operational tests.  We’re computing!

Next up:  sensor interfacing to read some data.

Also underway right now–preliminary design tests on the chassis.  Our team members want to try a unique configuration to get the photographs they want…they’re problem solving to make that happen.
