Solar Impulse - The first Round-the-World solar fight in history - with structural components from Carbo-Link

Huge congratulations to the Solar Impulse team for making history - flying Round-the-World without fuel. A full 40,000km is a truly impressive feat given our huge reliance of fossil fuels to travel even small distances. 

Keep your eye on the Solar Impulse team for their next adventure. 

Carbo-Link provided a wide range of carbon tubes forming the truss structure for the main frame and wings. With the ability to lay fibres at 0'' to the tubes axis we are able to manufacture incredibly strong structural tubes whilst keeping weight to an absolute minimum.
