Vulture 2 spaceplane launch hits Kickstarter target

3689616776?profile=originalOur £30k Kickstarter campaign to take our Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) mission to Spaceport America hit its target last night, and we thank all those of you from DIY Drones who chipped in to help the cause.

Our plucky Playmonaut - the rocket-powered Vulture 2 spaceplane's pilot - kicked off the celebrations yesterday, as you can see above. Rest assured, he's now back in training for the historic flight.

There are still a couple of days to run on the campaign, so get down to Kickstarter if you fancy some exclusive LOHAN merchandise. Other than that, it just remains to say see you in New Mexico!
