Windshapers for Drone Testing

Perform free flight tests in your own lab with a custom Windshaper

We offer Windshapers (open air wind generators) that are fully customizable to meet your testing needs. With simple commands you can generate wind flows and gusts that simulate real flying conditions.

Drone testing is made easy with software that lets you control each fan individually, simulating conditions you will encounter in nature. Add weather effects, a motion capture system or tilting capability to test your drone in every environment.
