- Patrick and Sarang: Got a more powerful external motor. Made a finite state machine for the actual functioning of the stability system. Wrote the pseudo code for the finite state machine.

- Patrick: Extended the previous, two motors + two sensors, stability system to a four motors + four sensors stability system.

- Sarang: Worked on getting the new motor working. Did research on how to control the external motor using the General Purpose I/O port. Figured out the new propeller + motor system.
