  1. The glider is pretty cool. Wonder if anyone has tried to write a thermaling algorithm? Birds with brains the size of a walnut do it with great success; how hard could it be? ;)

  2. Why not do a typical autohelm? you can get the sensors to sense rotational drift for dirt most anywhere and that would be more sensitive to the really slow update that GPS has.

    Now autopilot that does Waypoint x,y,Z and will traverse the three enroute to waypoint Z that’s cool.
