2016-03-02: Tethered Flight in the AI

Loc and John installed the tether in the Autonomy Incubator in preparation for flying the GLARF, a lower-fidelity model of the GL-10 used for custom avionics R&D.

John and Loc attach the center pulley to a ceiling strut
and Bubbles is ready for the first load test.

Bubbles stepped in for our first load test!


And then we tested with 75 pounds - three times the expected GLARF load.

Bubbles supervises as the tether is tested to 75 pounds
