A day at work

A typical flight test day at UAS Europe. -5 degrees Celsius and nice calm weather out at the Flight Test field. This time we tested our new algorithm for automatic loiter landing. The new algorithm allows EasyPilot 3.0 (our autopilot) controlled UAV's to minimize the required landing area. This is done by circulating around the landing point and at the right moment, at the right altitude, land the UAV in a safe way using a laser altimeter. We performed several fully autonomous flights with a landing accuracy of +/- 3 m. The EasyPilot 3.0 still offers previous auto landing modes such as left leg (6 waypoints), right leg (6 waypoints) and straight landing (3 waypoints). This new Loiter landing feature will be standard on all our Spy Owl 200 UAV's in the future.
