We have a Kinetic control authority testing site available!
Good news! I managed to find a nearby racetrack with a drag strip that will let me use it to verify control authority of the system during preflight verification! After both nearby airports told me they couldn't let me use their runways, one because they had a restriction in their contract that the runway may not be closed for non-aviation usage, and the other just straight up told me no, it was looking more and more like I'd have to use the highway which was a bad idea in more ways than one. Fortunately, when I asked at the racetrack the manager was completely on board and readily agreed to let us use their facility with scheduling flexibility. More updates coming soon when the test fin motor and driver arrive (slow boat from china)
