A project log for GimbalBot

Gimbaled thrusters, aerospace-grade adhesives, carbon-fiber-reinforced polymers, and inertial measurement units. This is a space project!

The newest tag says it all: GimbalBot missed the cut, but I will still finish this one through to the end. I hope all the other Round One DQers do the same. Don't finish your project for space--finish your project for you!

On a more serious note, a hearty congratulations to all of the teams still in the running. It's been a great ride, and I know you will all make great things come of this unique event. We're all watching now!

[... and on that note, I'm off to the MN State Fair, where I'll have all sorts of fun not being hunched over my soldering iron for the first evening in some time... ]

I was disappointed to see your project didn't get picked. I thought for sure you'd be in the top 50, especially with the level of content you had. I'm gad you're still pressing on and I'll be keeping a close on on Gimbalbot's progress!

Thanks Peter! I was disappointed too, but I got what I really needed out of the contest: enough motivation to push through the first few months. At this point, I've got enough in to GimbalBot that it has to fly!
