Thread: New round trip world record 111/222 Km!!!

    New round trip world record 111/222 Km!!!

    Hi everybody, today I was able to improve my 100 km record. It was a long 6 hours soaring flight.
    The key to reach 111 km range was the high gain dish antenna developed by Sircana (Circular Wireless).


    For the moment I enclose the KMZ file from the logger:

    And some photos:

    Wow

    What was the motor time?

    With only 2Ah used at 110km I am guessing it was all gliding!!!

    It looks like the solar basically replaces any battery that it uses.

    Sorry to smash your record but the techpod just did a 2 hour flight circling over head . With speeds 30-35 mph no thermals no solar. The production model will lose a pound compared to the prototype I flew today. This will push flight times above three hours. Will be posting the video tonight. Cool plane and video though

    The Techpod will never compete w/ the best gliders out there Wayne - but they also can cost upwards of $3000. As far as gliders go, Robertos' glider isn't even what I'd call top notch. It's affordable by pretty much everyone. Imagine if he used a really serious glider - GAME OVER!

    Roberto - kudos sir. Seems you and PixtureThis are going back to back for these records - EPIC!!! I'm happy with my 22 mile effort, no desire to go further - but I'll just live by watching you.

    It is a "glider" it just has a much bigger payload

    WOWOWEEWOW! love it.

    it's not just about the plane anyways sentry. the setup and piloting are second to none.

    surely the techpod post is tongue in cheek :P
