The first flight of the MORUS UAV!

The maiden flight of the MORUS aerial vehicle powered by four internal combustion enginees took place in a military base in Udbina on November 17, 2017. The team (Stjepan Bogdan, Matko Orsag, Tomislav Haus, Antun Ivanović, Marko Car) spent a week in the base preparing the vehicle for experiments. 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.
