Update 8/26/15: I have been working on several project simultaneously. This helps with my Hackaday Prize Solar Drone by testing systems on multiple platforms. I am updating pictures and project logs currently.

We are getting near the end of prototyping of our second generation quad drone called LOKI. While it is capable of many things, search and rescue are one of the more benign activities that LOKI is capable of performing. I will give a brief overview of the hardware and then we will talk about scenarios that have been tested and things we believe we have not achieved yet with this drone tech
