New round trip world record 111/222 Km!!!

Hi everybody, today I was able to improve my 100 km record. It was a long 6 hours soaring flight.

The key to reach 111 km range was the high gain dish antenna developed by Sircana (Circular Wireless).

For the moment I enclose the KMZ file from the logger:

And some photos:

Job well done! I see you added more solar cells on the wing, how did they perform in the flight?

Yeah, what kind of return do you get from those solar cells?
