What will Conti do next? Aside from continued refinements of his WAM-V prototype, he’s not sure. “I need something challenging and difficult as I grow older because I have nothing to lose,” he reflects, adding, “When you are young and you make a mistake, your career may suffer. You have doubts because you failed. [But now] a year is gone and you ask yourself, what have you done? Nothing is left and you have very few memories.”
