GPS FASER flight 4 was conducted to test the waypoint tracking capability of the Ultrastick 125 airframe. The new waypoint tracking algorithm was used (waypoint_guidance_fast), and the 150x150m waypoint pattern was flown. The strong winds caused the airplane to consistently miss the downwind waypoint. Perhaps an increased waypoint tolerance would eliminate this effect.
