06.08.2012 (2nd day of competition)
what happend to the SD-1 and Arcus-E?
The SD-1 Team had the badest luck possible. The aircraft type is still under certification
in germany and was grounded just one day before GSC. We regret the missing competitor as we anticipated big potential.
The Arcus did actually start today, but the weather conditions didn't permit to leave the aerodrome with the perspective of coming home again. The battery allows to climb about 2000 meters once and therefore enables to fly approximately 100 km - which wasn't enough for the 330 km task.
