    DescriptionThis article describes the experimental flight test campaign of a 65kg UAV that was designed for passive load alleviation through aeroelastic tailoring. This was the result of a European H2020 project called FLEXOP. TUDelft was a partner in that project, and designed, together with the DLR, the tailored wings. The flight test was successful, and it was demonstrated that the loads could indeed be alleviated passively, yielding a lower weight wing.
