Salary drone from Facebook made its first test flight


Salary drone from Facebook made its first test flight Solar drone from Facebook "Aquila", which is designed for long flights over an area to facilitate connectivity to the Internet is going to make its first test flight after two years of development. As the company reported today, raw version of "Aquila" completed official flight on June 28. The car remained in the air for 96 minutes, during this time the ground crew checked all functions of the autopilot system, transmitters and aerodynamics.
"Aquila" has a wingspan comparable to commercial aircraft, but its weight is of the order of a small passenger car. It can fly at altitude 18 000 meters based on large wings and electric motors with power of 5 KW. While that test flight was much shorter than the planned two months, but to start and this achievement!
In "Facebook" I want to make the plane stay in the air as long as possible in its final version for the good of undertaking virtually no. The team at this stage of the biggest indicators is not reached, and even encountered a small problem before landing, but in General we can say that all went well.
The aircraft was equipped with cameras in order for the managers of "Facebook", were able to mount here is a promo video:

First flight

Despite the success of this test flight, the team notes that there are several key issues before the project will make the next step – the most important of which is associated with the presence of enough sunlight to the battery charged quickly and has enough charge for night flight. Developers and curators of the project from "Facebook" also say that the success of "Aquila" the aircraft was also economically justified as an alternative for modern network infrastructures. Simply put: construction and maintenance in a squadron of drones that provide Internet connection should be cheaper than laying a special cable in the appropriate region.
