I totally didn't expect this to happen. Helidirect had a 12 days of Christmas contest and gave away a bunch of great stuff, and I won a Torq 9188 tail servo! It showed up today so I spent a little while bolting it in and reset the Brain's rudder output to 760uS. I still need to set up the endpoints and do some creative wiring so I can run the 9188 off the Ice Lite 100's BEC, set to 7.5v, and the cyclic servos off the external BEC at 6v. I'm also thinking about swapping the Ice Lite for the Ice 75 (non-Lite) in the B500 and switching to 8s packs. I'll need a different motor for that, though. Even on 6s the peak current is 23a, so it'll do fine. Tons of soldering involved in that, though.

Haven't done much with the Raptor lately. The weather has been miserable for weeks, every day we've had either rain, wind, or both. Right now I'm working on the MultiWii autopilot that will eventually go on the Raptor, along with a 2 axis camera pod, but I've discovered that the planned testbed (E360) is too small to cram everything in, so I'm putting it back together and grabbing the Blade 500. I have the computer itself and the 3 axis gyro/accelerometer on the breadboard and working, the barometer should be here tomorrow, then I just need to scrape up more cash for the GPS and compass. I'll also need to come up with a way to convert 8 outputs from the receiver to a single PPM stream. That's the project for this afternoon. If all goes as planned the Raptor and something with wings is going to Boy Scout camp in Colorado with me and the boy this July.
