Landing with strong wind using mRo x2.1-777

During some tests that we carried out autonomously of the mRo navigation systems, while we flew, the wind began to blow very hard and we decided to suspend the mission and land manually because the wind was increasing more and more and the gusts were erratic and unexpected.

To end the day, during the final approach the pilot made some low passes to be able to take some pictures of the plane from very close. Once the photos we achieved and we saw the circumstances complicated by the wind and the difficult landing, as fun we challenge the pilot to land with aim.

Due to the strong wind we couldn't land at the first attempt, so we had to abort the landing on several occasions repeating the same flight pattern.

At some moments during the final approach phase, we switch to “Stabilized” flight mode to check the safety that the mRo autopilot (mRo x2.1-777) brings while corrects the plane banking very quickly.

The video quality is not at all the best, because vibrations are shown on the camera and this is because it is mounted on a pan/tilt system.

You said strong wind however, I noticed the tree branches and leaves quite calm.

It is difficult to perceive the movement of the branches from this video. But you can see this video fraction where the plane is with wind in tail, you can listen the motor how slows down and see the speed with which the plane travels until it turns again and be against the wind.
