Position Hold flights at High Altitude with the OptiFlow Tricopter (OFT)

Position Hold flights at High Altitude with the OptiFlow Tricopter (OFT) v1

Successful high altitude (>100m AGL) position hold tests flights with an optical flow sensor on a Tricopter (OFT) UAV.

Tests flights:

1) Fast climb rate to about 100 m AGL in hold position mode with only the throttle command.

2) At 100 m AGL, a 360° turn has been done (wind 14 km/h from SE) with only the yaw command.

3) Fast descend…
