Planning 
We are progressing as planned so far. It is an amazing enthusiasm in the team that propels us forward! It is a true honor to work like this. Soon, more professional website will be ready, and this will surely come as a surprise, even to the biggest critics among viewers!

Highly interesting visit at junkers-profly.de
The Company produces rescue parachutes with a ballistic rocket for opening ( www.junkers-profly.de). The interesting thing is that this company has a variety of ballistic rockets and parachutes, which allows them to make all sort of combinations, even to the point that the whole aircraft could be lifted first by the rocket, and then have the chute opened. All in all it was a highly useful visit, and now we have all necessary details regarding the use of a safety chute. We have also discussed the airbag parachute option.

Detailed design drawings
Along with Marko and Predrag, I’ve discussed the last details, and drawings are now finished… So construction can begin! We will also continue in the weeks to come!

Ordering the materials
All materials and components have been ordered, except for the 63V charger (we are still discussing a solution with some advisors), and the canopy (but that will be resolved during next week).

Student’s progress
The student Chaofan has started working, and the first steps of certification requirements study have been made.  It would be good in this stage to count the comments/advice of the NLR.

Using Fabric – small experiment
Just as an idea! we experimented for a moment with fabric as a fuselage cover. In the first picture you can see a raw cut foam. The stretch fabric covers it nicely, and you can clearly see the rough shape. The picture below shows a first flexible PE foam. Now all scarves are invisible, and a smooth surface is created. This technique is interesting for future fuselage systems.
