Project Skyflash lifts off and is flying totally stable without pilot!

The Team is enthusiastic: After several problems during preparations Skyflash lifts off perfectly for the ‘Discovery Channel’ crew that flew from Canada to Germany for this event. A height of 1,50m and a distance of 35m are a clear proof of the airworthyness of the concept - Especially since there was no pilot controlling the airplane. He has been replaced by 80kg of steel that represent only his physical weight.

News Restart Fruehling 
Finally the work towards the first flight can continue!

The winter here in germany stayed way longer than expected. This meant that we had to wait for better weather to test our new undercarriage and V-tail. Only by now, towards the end of april, the winter and snow have finally gone. So, with new energy and motivation, we start the tests and hope to continue the program as planned.
