Update: The Spirit of Butts Farm

Posted 8 Aug 2002 at 15:07 UTC by steve Share This

Back in April of 2001, we reported on a UAV called The Spirit of Butts Farm. Essentially an autonomous model airplane, the vehicle was built by members of the DCRC with the intention of crossing the Atlantic Ocean. After a year of work, they're ready for their first attempt at the crossing and will have real-time telemetry available on their web site. An initial lauch attempt this morning was scrubbed due to fog. More articles about the project can be found at National Geographic, the Washington Post, and Slashtot.
