A lot of work went into building this plane, adding redundancies and safeties, as well as fitting 3 cameras, and the result was well worth it. Big thanks to the ardupilot team, nightghost for his OSD firmware, and all the other folks who wrote some of the software the 5 computer/microcontrollers that were in the plane (not counting those on the camera or VTX):
