Team Vision for Integrated System Build & Test Phase

This phase is the main building phase for the project. We have prioritized the production of hardware and readiness for testing.

Along the way we have continued to grapple with landing gear difficulties. Problem tracking documents these struggles. Both sets of landing gear have been redesigned for manufacturing purposes.

In terms of overall progress we are behind the original deadlines. Primarily, we have not completed the wings as expected and the thrust test remains incomplete. This is primarily due to several absences due to other obligations and the efforts which have been spent addressing unforeseen problems.
