Our First Fly-by-wire Flight

December 20, 2022

Recently, we performed our first fly-by-wire test flight of our Van’s RV-12. This is the first step in creating an airplane that anyone can fly. Check out a snippet of our flight in the video below.

To keep our flying and our testing safe, we are not replacing the original stick, cables, and torque rods in our test airplane. This allows us to power off the Airhart system at any time and fly the plane as it was originally designed.

As we continue to test our fly-by-wire and attitude estimation systems, we will begin incorporating more advanced control schemes to create our simplified flight technology. Stay tuned!
