    From the second day event, I have probably around 50 photos to post. Since other threads are more special purpose, for almost-live-reporting, or already overcrowded, I thought I'l post them in a separate thread. Some of the photos are slightly photoshopped, usually to remove distractions or increase contrast etc. (whcih is one of the reasons it'll take a number of days until I've posted all of them).

    Thanks Norbert, that rear pic is great. Seeing it, I see that the rear jump seats look VERY comfortable. Still not a fan of those tail lights though.

    I recommend cross posting that rear pic in the jump seats and tail light threads for reference

    He is programmed to follow the magnetic stripes on the ground. Spreading arms helps to get better signal.

    He's going to have to flap harder as I don't think he has a favorable thrust to weight ratio.

    Norbert you're an excellent photographer! Good job! You got angles that nobody else took.

    Looking at the pics, I started thinking about how difficult (and expensive) it must have been to make these few beta cars one at a time.
