Two more systems!

As of last night, after diverse trials and tribulations, we have two more Airball systems:

Apart from the various noodling around we've been doing with verifying the airdata on the plane, the problems with this particular build-up is that we seem to have gotten a bad batch of TCA9548A I2C mux chips, and messing with that issue wasted a bunch of time. But we're back on track, and newly confident that, if we assemble our things right, they actually do work properly. Yay.

The first system we hope to give to a friend who has a background in aeronautical human factors, and it looks something like this:

You can see the probe and display, obviously, and our current prototype for our "V block" shaped strut clamp that should be compatible with a large variety of airplanes.

Stay tuned for more news!
