Team Vision for Subsystem Level Build & Test Phase

During this phase, the team did all preparatory work necessary to start building major sub-assemblies. This included machining aluminum, steel, and wooden parts, finishing the remainder of the purchasing, as well as making progress towards the completion of the static thrust test. At the end of Week 5, the fuselage sub-assembly has been assembled, and electrical systems necessary for the static thrust test have been tested and verified.
