Good day I would just like to ask if a fixed wing aircraft such as a glider(without thrust capability therefore needs external forces such as air flow to move constraining its movement) can be considered a non-holonomic system considering the fact that it cannot move freely compared to a quadcopter that is holonomic.
I found this information from: What's the difference between a holonomic and a nonholonomic system?
Holonomic system are systems for which all constraints are integrable into positional constraints.
Nonholonomic systems are systems which have constraints that are nonintegrable into positional constraints.
Holonomic system where a robot can move in any direction in the configuration space.
Nonholonomic systems are systems where the velocities (magnitude and or direction) and other derivatives of the position are constraint.
