Another project update

It's been a while since I posted on this blog. I assure you that work on Airball is going strong, but things have shifted a bit.

I am basically at the point where the "technology demonstrator" phase is done, and I need to find a beachhead market and get this thing into people's hands. This may involve a "hobbyist" release made of 3D printed materials that people can make (per the original plan), or it may involve handing this off to a corporation, or ... any of a number of other options.

In order to get this pitch honed, I have been working on putting working prototypes in people's hands. I have at least one STOL / bush flying friend right now who is using this thing regularly, and we are figuring out what the best user interface abstractions can be for his type of flying.

Below is the situation in April 2022, with 4 systems (plus one "off camera") ready to send out. We have since found tweaks and improvement, which I will detail in subsequent blog posts, focusing on the probe; the display; and the mounting.
