Another successful UAV flight test

One of the greatest things about this job is that a couple times every year we head out to the airfield and test if the aircraft (a UAV) we have been working on will fly.  Below two videos shot a couple of days ago. The civilian mission it will be used for is still hush-hush but it flew beautifully 🙂

Note the gimbal camera under the nose (orange dome) which can automatically lock onto a given object while flying.
