On April 23, 2006, early in the morning, I have conducted a new serie of outdoor test flights with the GFS-UAV N-01A with a wind speed up to 10 km/h.
You will find below some photos and a video of the test flights.
The UAV N-01A, placed on its launch pad, is ready to take off.
While the power is increased the UAV takes off quickly at high speed.
The wind blows frontwards and the UAV N-01A is slightly inclined downwards during the hovering.
The N-01A flight is really impressive in the sky and the steering of the UAV is very easy.
This test flight has demonstrated that the N-01A is able to fly and hover at high altitude (AGL).
Return To Base (RTB) : while the power is decreased, the UAV N-01A descends smoothly...
Woww... These successful test flights have demonstrated again the great capabilities of this UAV...

Comments from Jean-Louis Naudin : These N-01A test flights have demonstrated that the UAV is able to hover at high altitude above the ground in spite of a front wind blowing up to 10 km/h. The steering of the UAV on each axis (Yaw, Roll, Pitch) is very easy for the pilot without additionnal computerized help.
