The Canon rides again.

The Gumstix has been rebooting itself a lot. Managed to get the Canon A560 in the air for the first time. On the first engine spoolup, the computer rebooted spontaneously & the engine stopped. On the next engine spoolup, it was stable. The T-Rex probably has the same vibration as the Corona. The A560 handles it better than the TX-1 because it doesn't have a wobbly stabilizing lens. The days of calm afternoons R over until October. Could only manage 2 minutes of autopilot before the wind took her away.

Got some nighttime airborn footage. Unfortunately the Gumstix rebooted during the landing. Engine cutoff didn't work & she thrashed around for a while. Fortunately the battery was too dead to do any major damage.
