ME5953*Embedded Flight Control Systems4 ch (3C 3L) (EL)
Describes the aerodynamic forces, moments and propulsive thrusts which act on fixed wing model aircraft. Stability, control, and flight performance characteristics are also investigated. Development of a system model and theoretical control algorithm tailored for the characteristics of a specific model airplane. Each student will use this knowledge to develop an embedded firmware-based control system to provide some autopilot features to a model airplane.
