“The flight was totally awesome” pilot Alexander Zosel said right after his landing. “It is definitely a sublime feeling to lift off, fly the first few meters, and then actually take my hand off the joystick and think that, yeah, it’s really as if I’m standing on the ground, and then I look down and there are 20-25 meters beneath me. It’s unbelievable what we’ve achieved here. It’s seriously unbelievable!”

“Also der erste Flug war einfach unglaublich” sagte Pilot Alexander Zosel direkt nach seiner Landung. “Es ist schon ein erhabenes Gefühl, abzuheben, zu fliegen die ersten Meter und dann wirklich mal die Hand vom Joystick wegzunehmen und zu merken, ja es ist als würde ich auf dem Boden stehen und dann gucke ich runter und es sind 20-25 Meter. Also es ist schon unglaublich was wir da geschaffen haben. Es ist echt unglaublich!“
