Too Much Yaw!!!

But nine minutes into the flight, controllers on the ground lost contact with the HTV-2. The culprit, according to Darpa’s Engineering Review Board? “Higher-than-predicted yaw, which coupled into roll, thus exceeding the available control capability at the time of the anomaly.”

Welcome to Ridemonkey. You must be new here. :D:rofl::weee:
Hah thanks! I lurk on here more often than I'm proud to admit, but upon seeing this gem of a thread I just couldn't resist the urge to log in. I'm sure a lot of independent engineers do/have done more than just one type of work. Imagine that?! Next on the amazing revelations list - dressing like Sam Hill doesn't actually make you faster, only douchier.
