With the firmware ThermoPilot v7.0 and the ArduPilotMega v2.x board, the e-Glider is able to do a full autonomous Thermal soaring in a specified airspace and also an autonomous cross country soaring mission following a flight plan.
Here a video of a full autonomous Thermal Hunting with an EasyStar 2 (Multiplex) piloted by the ThermoPilot v7.0.
The full flight has been recorded with a GoPro camera onboard.
