TESTING
Testing - er fliegt   In this project, we planned for a testing phase quite early, because we had no prior experiences to rely upon. Especially the marine calculations for buoyancy and stability had to be verified with a real test.
     
A wooden box with approximate dimensions, an auxiliary motor with z-drive and very accurate wings were enough for that - and so the prototype swam and flew shortly after the definition of the concept - but still six months away from the deadline. He didn't fly perfect, but good enough to greenlight the next phase. The fine-tuning had to be moved to January - a rather bad time for watertests in our latitudes.

31st of January: We deliver the tested and fully functional Splash to our client Rinspeed on time for movie- and fotoshootings. He's going directly to Miami, USA!
