Status Update

mAEWing1

  • Flight tests on Fenrir complete with the following control laws validated:
    • Pitch and roll angle tracking
    • Auto throttle / airspeed hold
    • Auto approach and landing
  • Sköll MOI testing complete with the following values:
    • Ixx: 3.098 kg-m^2
    • Iyy: 0.464 kg-m^2
    • Izz: 3.315 kg-m^2
    • Mass: 6.2698 kg
  • Changes will now be tracked from this baseline and updates to the mass and inertia will be sent.
  • Sköll rigid flight test plan:
    • Ganged surface excitations to identify SISO system
    • Individual control surface excitations
    • Pitch multisines
    • Airspeeds: 20 m/s, 30 m/s, 40 m/s
