dc.description.abstractQuadcopters are used in a wide variety of applications, almost all of which require flying in turbulent conditions. Especially for small quadcopters, whose velocities are of the same order as those of the velocity fluctuations caused by wind or proximity to obstacles, understanding the effects of turbulence is of vital importance in developing better control and design strategies. To this end, an experiment was designed and conducted in a wind tunnel to systematically analyze the susceptibility of small quadcopter flight to disturbances due to homogeneous turbulence. A framework relating turbulence properties and this susceptibility was developed and compared to experimental results. The initial results are found to agree with this framework, and are used to develop a plan for future experiments.
