High Altitude Glider

0

The Plan

Attach a glider to a weather balloon and go as high as it will go (hoping for at least 20 km, 30km would be fantastic, 40km would be record breaking!), then release the glider and fly back to earth FPV.

Yes, we know David and some other guys have done the same, but we want to do it our way and  ….well….we want to do it!

 

 

The Team

House4Hack have teamed up with the guys from HABEX – they have lots of experience and has reached a height of 39km….so we are excited to learn from their experience

On the House4Hack side, the team currently is

  • Arnold
  • Gert
  • Matthew
  • Nico
  • Philip
  • Richard
  • Schalk

If you are interested to join us, pop in on a Tuesday evening – we are in the “space” room.
