Bison 1 flight test is a go!

posted in: news, uav | 0

The Bison 1 flight test on this Thursday (23 April 2015) went as expected.  The plane flew with minor tweaks needed.

The plane did crash once upon landing after the front landing gear broke its guide wires, but the nosecone (and the bison-pilot) and the fuselage performed their duty and dissipated the impact.

I should mention that we ran out of gold and blue monokote halfway through… (we have enough monokote, but we might need more)

Using the data collected from this flight test, we plan to make significant changes in the construction of the main wing and the overall layout of the components inside the fuselage.  We also made a few changes to the tail for the flight test on Sunday (26 April 2015).
