It seems our sources were right, we reported back in July that Aquila tip stalled on landing. Bloomberg is saying it was a structural failure.
Right from the outset no landing and subsequent fist pumping was fishy in the pro video released afterwards. There should have been images of the chief false news promulgator, Aquila and the team all stood together.
We reached out to the team in July for comment, but they kept strictly mum.
It was still a great achievement, persistent drones are not built to land ;-)
Now come on Somerset team release the landing video! Make it a proper job.
