Our team just proved the whole toolchain from flight control testing to real-world flight tests. Stages include:
VFTE - Testing controller law gains
HiL - Testing the controller on real hardware
Flying Lab - Testing the controller in a real flight test
With the Flying Lab and its HiL Add-on, the Ground Station allows to observe real-time flight data and send autopilot target values.
Remember that the VFTE is available as a FREEMIUM version at alphalink-vfte.com. For information on the HiL, the Flying Lab and the new Ground Station, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
