    They're pushing the edge of the weather window, even in mojave. Good luck to them.

    Good point. I wonder if they can make an IFR recovery? Not much commercial value if they can't (at some point). I'd bet Burt has a GPS autopilot built in.

    According to X-Prize rules, it has to carry a pilot plus ballast for 2 pax; give 'em a jingle. I'm sure they'd be happy to bump four small sandbags from the manifest in exchange for one big one. ;)

    They might have to get rid of 5 sandbags.

    That's my kind of job, dead weight.;f
