    Aerodynamics experts have tested modern aircraft in wind “tunnels” for years.  But unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are subsonic propeller-driven vehicles with navigational systems and functions that differ from conventional aircraft.  Wind tunnel testing of drones therefore requires substantial adaptation.
