High Altitude Glider

Posted on Monday, June 30th, 2014 in DIY, hacks by DP

Check out this cool High Altitude Glider project that House4Hack and HABEX made:

On 14 June 2014, team HAG from House4Hack teamed up with HABEX. We released our High Altitude Glider on weather balloons into the atmosphere. After our glider reached the CAA approved height, kilometres up in the atmosphere, we released the glider from the balloons. Equipped with many on-board cameras, telemetry and live video streaming down to us, the aim was to fly the glider from high above earth, in a first person view style, down to mother earth and come land it at our feet. This video is the product of our adventure. Curious and want to join us on our next adventure? Come by House4Hack!
