Is there any way to import wind dynamics to environment for aerial vehicle simulation?

Hello,

You can somewhat fake the wind or water with particles and additional forces. Have a look at the demo models models/robots/mobile/Quadricopter.ttm, models/components/locomotion and propulsion/Ait jet.ttm, or models/robots/mobile/ACM-R5.ttm.

The API functions related to dynamic particles can be found here. The API functions related to auxiliary forces and similar can be found here (for instance simAddForce, simAddForceAndTorque, simGetVelocity).

Cheers
