We propose a new approach for the reliable 6-dimensional quasi-static manipulation of an aerial towed-cable system. The novelty of this approach lies in the combination of results deriving from the static analysis of cable-driven manipulators with the application of a cost-based motion-planning algorithm to solve manipulation queries. Using this approach, we can ensure that the produced paths are feasible and do not approach dangerous configurations that could provoque the malfunction of the system. The approach has been simulated on the FlyCrane, consisting of a platform attached to three flying robots using six fixed-length cables. The obtained results show the success and the suitability of the approach.
