It's all coming together...
The mounting brackets that were designed last week have now been manufactured.
Here is a photo of the computer stack without wiring. The brown board closest to the camera still has a few components that needs attaching. These components will allow the computer to control the heli.
Both the LiDAR and the computer stack attached on the helicopter, still no wires (that is a job for next week).
