The Sokkia-Topcon-Shanghai Team did test flights in high altitudes at the Chinese Qinghai Province, including flights at over 5000 m ASL. Despite ground winds powers of 4 to 5 from changing directions, SIRIUS landed only 1 meter away from the target landing spot.

We are looking forward for your next tests pushing the limits!
