The glider uses thermal soaring and dynamic soaring methods commonly used by full scale gliders<br /> during cross country soaring competitions. During a full autonomous flight defined by a flight plan, the glider<br /> is able to optimize itself the onboard power using the energy gained by the updrafts during its thermal hunting process.<br /> <br /> More infos at: <a href="http://diydrones.com/profile/JeanLouisNaudin">http://diydrones.com/profile/JeanLouisNaudin</a>
