Based on data from the Ingenuity Mars helicopter that arrived late Friday night, NASA has chosen to reschedule the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter’s first experimental flight to no earlier than April 14.

During a high-speed spin test of the rotors on Friday, the command sequence controlling the test ended early due to a “watchdog” timer expiration.

This occurred as it was trying to transition the flight computer from ‘Pre-Flight’ to ‘Flight’ mode.

The helicopter is safe and healthy and communicated its full telemetry set to Earth.
