Here’s an old video from our 195s tethered flight the day before our NGLLC Level 2 competition slot.Â Winds gusting past 30 knots, and it’s still rock solid.Â If you count tethered flights, I think it’s the longest duration VTVL flight ever (longer than DC-X or Armadillo):
It just goes to show that while every landing for a VTVL vehicle is a crosswind landing, that’s not necessarily a showstopper.
