PL8: Returning a flying wing from a High Altitude Balloon - first autonomous glide tests

So, I started this project 2 years ago. Not cutting my hair until i finish it.

The High Altitude Balloon Return project aims to return a flying wing autonomously from a 100,000 feet. There's a lot of challenges associated with this. I tried to make my own flight controller in the beginning (Project log 1-6 to see this progress), now I'm using dronekit and Arduplane because someone with an IQ that isnt in the single digits told me I was being stubborn.

Or, if you just want to see the flight test footage:
