This paper provides an overview of the experimental flight test platform developed by the University of Minnesota Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Research Group. Key components of the current infrastructure are highlighted, including the flight test system, high-fidelity nonlinear simulations, software-and hardware-in-the-loop simulations, and the real-time flight software. Recent flight control research and educational applications are described to showcase the advanced capabilities of the platform. A… CONTINUE READING
