Cool, but what's the Falcon 8? (some kind of quad?)

Its the Octocopter from Ascending Technologies, we will be flying outdoors at the main event in July with..... other platforms as well. In fact, heres an image we have just come in from some more flying.

There will hopefully be lots of platforms flown each day before the main flying display, at the moment there is a slight plan in the pipeline to stream IP camera video from each UAS to the big screens all over the airfield.

I was keeping mum about this, but I am flipping proud that Mike and I were the first people to fly a UAS in support of Farnborough.

There will be more updates here http://www.farnborough.com/Site/Content/Farnborough2010/FirstMagazi...
