Progress: Incorporated new team members. Successfully tested FlightGear data link at 5 Hz with Cockpit Interface Controller software. All parameters responded as expected. Identified need for precision control and possible filtering of data from FlightGear.
Goals & Ongoing Activities: -Initial test of data input to FlightGear -Development of avionics prototyping assembly -Switch and potentiometer selection -Development of FlightGear B-25 systems model
Exterior Sheet Metal Team - Scott S.
Exterior Sheet Metal team remains on hold until the next big phase (buttoning up the turret enclosure. In the mean time, sheet metal crew will be assisting Randy on interior metal in the hopes we get this done in the next couple weeks in order to get the interior painted.
Flight Controls - Scott S & Eric S
The throttle quadrant arms are now finished. They have been removed from the enclosure temporarily so the enclosure can be painted with the interior of the 25. In the meantime, work is underway for the interfacing mechanics that will be needed to send signals to the Avionics Team (throttle, prop & mixture arms).
