JP Aerospace flews its V shaped Ascender air ship again last Sunday: Ascender 26 Flies Again! – JP Aerospace.

Sunday August 2nd JP Aerospace conducted the second flight of Ascender 26.  There was a series of goal for this flight including a faster climb rate, steeper pitch angle and buoyancy controlled maneuvering.  The flight was a compete success. We even flew a little bit higher, 6,850 feet (2,850 above our 4000 foot launch site).

The vehicle landed undamaged four miles down range.
