Armadillo Quad Unveiled
Armadillo Aerospace News updated, with cool renderings of an all-new vehicle called Quad John Carmack’s team has decided to build for Lunar Lander Challenge. This one does not look like it could tip over. The plan is to build two nearly identical Quads and compete in both levels of the Challenge. Possible winnings: $1.6 million
The tall vehicle they’ve been working on, called VDR for Vertical Drag Racer, is ready to fly but just sitting around for lack of friendly skies.
John also tells of a recent visit by commercial space legend Lutz Kayser of OTRAG fame, who dispensed both wisdom and precious hardware.
