Heptad Finished!

I finished the final parts of my Heptad build last week. I took my time with this one, and enjoyed the process.

I tried to make wiring and such for the rc and downlink as neat as possible. Along with a few other minor "mods".

Weather here has been fairly terrible the last few weeks but I got out today for the maiden. Conditions weren't ideal but I found some smooth air up high.

Anyway it's a completely different flier to the Passive. Will be interesting to see how she goes in nicer conditions. Maiden/build video on the way...
