Solar Impulse first night flight delayed

This morning at 06h45, the Solar Impulse Mission Team had to take the decision to postpone the first night flight attempt. The problem comes from the telemetry transmitter that has broken down.

The system enables the ground team to follow in real time the flight mission and to monitor thousands of crucial parameters. With a prototype such as Solar Impulse currently in an experimental phase, this system is an essential component without which, the mission was not possible.

Due to this inoperative piece of equipment produced specifically for this prototype, it was not possible to replace it and the first attempt had to be postponed. Though intensive work to find a solution, at this particular time no date for the next trial could be announded.
