New levels of "Cool" in remote control planes

6 08 2004

The guys at Cornell have come up with a plane that flies using GPS coords, and runs on Windows XP embedded, and was programmed using C# for Compact Framework.

From the article:

To test their flight control algorithms, the group used Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, running the algorithms for hundreds of hours. They used a SIG Rascal aircraft with a 110″ wingspan. The aircraft is 75 ¾” long and weighs thirteen pounds.

Cool!  I want one!
