The goal for this flight was to gather open-loop data to identify the aero and flexible dynamics at 27 m/s. Following launch and setting up for the first test point, the pilot thought that the motor may not have been working correctly. The test point was aborted and a successful landing was conducted at 23 m/s. Examination of the flight data showed that the motor and controllers were operating normally.
