Full autonomous thermal hunting with an Easyglider piloted by the ThermoPilot v7

Here a video of the new firmware v 7.0 (june 2013) which uses a new algorithm (MLA) to do an accurate thermal hunting during a full autonomous cross country soaring mission of the Easyglider.

This project has been started in october 2010 and its purpose is to build a full autonomous Thermal Hunter Glider which is able to fly for a long duration in an area defined by a radius, a ceiling and a minimal altitude. The glider uses thermal soaring and dynamic soaring methods commonly used by full scale gliders
during cross country soaring competitions. During a full autonomous flight defined by a flight plan, the glider
is able to optimize itself the onboard power using the energy gained by the updrafts during its thermal hunting process.
