The assembly process requires diverse knowledge and experience with building similar systems, precise soldering, harnesses, integration of electro-mechanic sub-systems, assemblies working with Polymer parts, specially designed heat sinks, etc. All of the above needs to meet the customer’s QA & QC process according to the most advanced procedures and standards. Assembly calibration and ATP runs are done according to written procedures and with customer’s software, mainly for the system check run and software upload.
After the final testing, dry run is done under strict safety procedures in a specially designed and manufactured safety cage, tools and gig’s. While testing within the safety cage, calibration is done to the blades, Servo, engines, and cameras gimbals.
