A pretty strong head wind. It gave me the opportunity to do some descent testing, hover, transition and horizontal flight. The unit handled the wind beautifully. It looks so much like a bird with the active wing control that contributes to the stabilization. To be able to beat the wind I went -2 degrees from last night’s attack angle. I have some close ups and some interesting transitional flight against the wind.

The trick to transition back successfully is to take it slow, and let the unit slow down before going fully vertical.

This will be may last test unless something goes wrong. I will install the FPV cam and see if I can have some fun. The hardware’s useful life is almost fully consumed with all crashes and tests.

I will probably be building a new one with a different wing mechanism.

Thank you!
