Winter hat.

Hermione’s innards have been exposed all winter; her summer hat doesn’t fit with the LiPo heating element installed.  Today, I finally got round to cutting down my spare salad bowl to make her winter hat, which also required a longer CF pole for the ublox NEO-M8T GPS receiver and case.

She is now as ready as she can be for tomorrow’s GPS tracking testing.

P.S. There are a couple of other benefits beyond how great ‘H’ looks: her hat provides wind protection thus keeping the IMU temperature more stable; she’s also more visible from above i.e. on the DJI Mavic down-facing video I’ll be taking tomorrow.
