This is the sort of thing T3 entrants get up to, well done!
HABLEG has a mass of 7kg, a wingspan of 3m and can carry an additional payload of up to 3kg. The flight was conducted at the rocket base ESRANGE in northern Sweden, where the glider was lifted to an altitude of 20km by means of a helium balloon. Upon release in the low density atmosphere, a central challenge was the transition from freefall to horizontal stratospheric flight. Having achieved this critical part of the mission, the plane was then automatically guided back to base while performing it´s test flight program. All characteristics of the plane could be tested and validated within the one hour glide phase.
Touch-down occurred less than 50m away from the launch site which makes it the first successful flight of this kind in Europe.
This is the most elegant HAB Glider launch I have ever seen!
