Unreasonable Rocket and SpeedUp

Unreasonable Rocket is posting faster than I can keep up. There's progress using the helicopter platform, and potential for some video from that platform soon. Maybe having gotten so far with the helicopter, they'll think about competing for (or otherwise participating in) the $80,000 International Aerial Robotics Competition?

Meanwhile, SpeedUp diagnoses some noise they've seen in data collected during tests. Supplier fault tolerance is mentioned, and tether testing may be coming soon.
