Simulation tests showed that vision-only aircraft flight control is effective, even with very few image analysis measurements and a simple glider model. Simulations showed that a 1/3 crosswind versus launch speed velocity ratio is the maximum the glider can handle, without losing track of the window. Should 10 feet/second winds be expected, the glider would have to fly at least 25 to 35 feet per second forward speed.
