May 13th, first test flight of both the Lego UAV and the stealth "minimum" UAV at Alameda Naval Air Station. Video coming soon.

Subsytems tested:

--Flight stabilization: Worked. a little rocking, but nothing too serious
--Autopilot: Sort of worked. Rudder throw needs to be increased. Heading change induced expected counter force by stabalization, which increased rocking. As a result the turning was very gradual. That needs to be faster
--Video: Ground team forgot to raise the receiver antenna, so signal was weak except when the UAV was overhead.

Miminum UAV:

Ony tested airframe and stabilization. Airframe flew normally. Stabalization induced strong down elevator and aileron deflection, despite multiple calibration attempts. Something either wrong with set up or hardware.
