MORUS experiments in Udbina

LARICS part of the MORUS team (Stjepan Bogdan, Matko Orsag, Tomislav Haus, Antun Ivanović, Marko Car) spent a week in a military base in Udbina preparing the MORUS aerial vehicle powered by four internal combustion engines for the first take off. We are happy to report that the maiden flight of the vehicle took place on November 17, 2017. In the final experiment, the vehicle was piloted through RC controller, with height, yaw, roll and pitch manually controlled by the pilot. This first flight demonstrated that the concept proposed within the project is feasible. There have been many lessons learned throughout the week spent in the base, which will be used to improve the vehicle design and performance.
