It's a big thanks very much to our US allies at Edge Research Lab for carrying out the final test flight for our Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) project.

Edge sent up a Pixhawk/servo/battery rig to see how the Vulture 2 spaceplane's avionics would handle the cold, and it appears the answer is not too badly.

Autopilot wranglers Linus Penzlien and Andrew Tridgell have cast an eye over the log files, and the initial findings are promising. There are details of the flight, plus a rather splendid video, right here.
