Outdoors flight experiment successfully conducted (27.02.2017)

On February 27, 2017, the HIGHWIND team successfully operated the flight carousel in an outdoors experiment on campus, 300 m away from its usual location in hangar 074. Three state space controllers were tested for robustness in unknown sidewind conditions with up to 12 m/s wind speed. The nominal airspeed of the airplane was limited to 8 m/s for safety reasons.
