eWind Field Testing TED in Pendleton, Oregon 06/2019

eWind’s TED (Tethered Energy Drone) flying at 150ft (approx 50m) in a 18 to 20 mph wind. Ground launch with NO propulsion system. Just testing responsiveness to ground commands and ability to complete crosswind flight and figure 8 pattern. The TED was attached to our test vehicle.

Another view of TED during field test June 2019. With the testing being successful, the next iteration of this design will be significantly more robust

Great to see some flying from another architecture.
I’m sure there are a lot of comparisons and lessons can be drawn from your work.
Thanks @katieschaef
Ohhhh kinda glad we didn’t get to see the next few seconds of the 2nd video
