Comments:On the first flight the payload shutdown just prior to the first line when both lidar were turned on at the same time. The system was restarted and powered up correctly when each lidar were turned on separately, but the GPS had dropped out during the shutdown and did not have the resolution that was desired. The PI requested that we RTB and refuel before reacquiring GPS on the ground and then return to the requested lines.
