Hello from the High Altitude Autonomous Glider guys

Hey! Really excited to share some of the progress we’ve made so far, and will make in the future.

I’m Tarik. Alongside with my project parter Kemal, we’re attempting to make the first return from 100,000 feet with an autonomous glider. We recently finished up our 250 foot proof of concept autonomous tests. We carried the glider up with a hexacopter and had it autonomously release and return to home.

Here’s the project log if you want to check that out:

The Cubepilot Orange is going to be great when it comes to safety - gives me a much clearer consciense going up to altitude with manned aircraft with sense and avoid technology in the form of ADS-B, and will probably help our talks with the FAA as well.

Excited for what the rest of this summer brings, hope to share that with you guys too.

Thanks again to Hex and ProfiCNC!
