Congratulations to UP team pilot Martin Bühler on his 304-kilometer flight (flat triangle) with the MERU 2 (EN/LTF D) in Switzerland/France! His conclusion: “It's fun with the MERU 2. A completely different average speed is possible.” In his case, it was 32.5 km/h. The flight on 11.05.2024 lasted a total of 9:34 hours and took off from Riederalp in Valais. The turnpoint was near Charmonix with an enviable view of Mont Blanc. Keep up the good work, Martin!
