Here are a few pictures from our first day of flying.  We still have a long way to go before we can use the Hawk in our research - we need more supervised flight time, we need to sort out a few issues with the video downlink and, perhaps most importantly, we need to produce a Manual of Approved Procedures that will be accepted by CAA.
