Tuesday, October 22nd 2013, AM. Smiles all around after a breezy theoretical revision of the Caipy and Mission Planner. Trainees had a big day that day, as they had to prepare for a round of independent flight demonstrations in the afternoon.

Perhaps the other reason for big smiles is launching the Caipy with an android smartphone app. Is there anything you can’t do with a smartphone?

PM. At 14:40, the CD team and myself sat peering through binoculars from the building, catching glimpses of the Caipy taking off from the grass field opposite us. The four-storey hotel offered the perfect viewing spot. And I might add, our stay at Chitwan River Side had been very comfortable.

Unsupervised flight missions for the afternoon demo went well. It was another smooth-sailing day at Sauraha for the trainees and CD team. Tomorrow, the Vanguard — the larger UAV — gets to come out of the box.
