ha great down under its must be amazing summer now happy you enjoy sounds, some footage would be cool!, also here was a bit sunny sunday so i was able take off one of 3 pullovers haha cheers

besides upwind, i noticed that after every "wave" of wind, meaning just when the wind is gone, there's some upwind following (is that actually also thermal?)

Guys, found an interesting video reg. steering - maybe applicable?

unfortunately in German but basically a clip about a research how birds steer using their fingers. they applied this to the robot via 4 servos.

Yes, I saw that the other day and thought that was a incredibly engineered model. It's like no other.
