Following the calibration of the motors and the flight controller, yesterday’s job was to clean up the megahexactoper and get it physically ready for a first flight.

I’ve read dozens of stories about builds like this where the builder was not sure to tighten all screws and disaster happens as a result.   So last night’s activity was to level all motors, and tighten all screws along with adding thread locker to them.  This way they hopefully do not loosen.

This week I hope to launch the megahexa on her maiden flight.  This is a big, symbolic step in the process of getting this bird doing its thing, aerial photos and video.
