Aerovel Flexrotor

Pandora has been out flight testing again, Tad McGeer and his team making low passes at Boardman Airfield for the benefit of the camera.

This is most certainly another platform to watch. Its designed to be completely autonomous launching from an inert platform. No bungee or rail, the landing being a return to that platform. With long endurance Pandora will require fewer take off and landings than other aircraft in its class. Reducing risk dramatically.

I think we will be seeing many more hybrid multirotor systems in the next couple of years.
