On the latest UAV-developments.


After months of building, my yoda is finally finished!
This high aspect ratio wing is perfect for thermalling. It has a rather high speed, but it can make very small circles!
Flying it is easy, but it’s very sensitive on it’s pitch. Also, you need to stay very focussed because it’s hard to see how it is oriented, you need to know it! Thas why it’s hard to fly it in the evening (after work :-) ) when it get’s a bit darker.

The maiden was perfect, first a glide test, and then the real liftoff!
