Alpha Flies with Flying Colors

The UAV, Alpha, flew successfully again this past Saturday, April 19th. This time, however, the plains wings were attached via a scissor wing mechanism. This mechanism was composed of a laser cut structure and ball bearings which allowed the plane’s wing to rotate on an axis and fold up parallel to the body. The group drove to the Swamp Flyers Flying Club Field and flew the plane for several hours without any issues.
