I mentioned that I intended to have a go at flying a stack of 2 rings together. Using the old baggy slower ring on top of the faster newer one.

It works a treat. Launches easily, Inflates well, Flies steadily. I had hoped to be sharing this in more detail with the cohort of the TU Delft AWE course... but the online component of that course has now unfortunately been closed.

This now really opens the question of scaling viability. And how to get universities and corporations to engage with that.

Please can somebody manage me / this / Daisy / Windswept and Interesting to push the project forward?
