The X-8 is ready for the APM autopilot system to be installed. I ordered it yesterday the 7th. So it's just a waiting game at this point. Time to read up on the set up.

So I get home and look what the UPS guy left for me. I plan on setting this bird up with all the bells and whistles, First I am going to give it a carbon fiber look, and then set it up with the APM autopilot and thermal camera gear on board. Stay tuned

I was lucky enough to get to be the Test Pilot on this beast.

Once I had the Tech turn off the forward tracking it flew nice. I also had to turn the GPS off as it made the machine bobble once in a while.

Slope Soaring today with my 2 meter glider, and my prop got stuck in my canopy on a start up and I ended up in a tree.
I got lucky and had zero damage.
