Just looking at the test log on the Scaled Composites website, I see that there have been no flights since June, whereas the flights were becoming quite frequent before. Also, all the flights seemed to revolve around envelope expansion and more specifically around flutter. Does that say something ? Is it the engine which is now holding things back? Anybody see any news that I may have missed recently.
This is not meant as a negative post, rather then hoping to see some updates which I may have missed. I'm very much looking forward to new updates/flights
who decided that a Horizon should be HORIZONtal???

I beileve there are some sort of modifications being made to the craft, but have no further details. During this period there will be no flights. This sounds like the break in flights is intentional, rather than due to a problem, which hopefully means that all is well as it is a very interesting program that I would like to see being successful.
