Time-delay is one key factor affecting handling qualities of remote piloted vehicle. In this paper, the composition elements of time-delay were analyzed, in order to determine the relationship between latency and handling qualities. Then, comparing with the definition of time-delay in manned aircraft operation, the expression of time-delay was proposed for remote piloted vehicle and the measuring method of time-delay in piloted airplane was used as a reference. Moreover, considering different types of time-delay in RPV operation, typical open-loop and closed-loop experiments were designed and conducted based on ground testing environment. According to these results, the relation between time-delay and handling qualities was obtained. Finally, validity of this relationship was demonstrated through simulated approach and landing during flight testing. Time-delay is a critical element of RPV handling qualities, the research of which will be helpful and meaningful in unmanned aerial vehicle design and flight testing.
