Development of a Low-Cost SubScale Aircraft for Flight Research : The FASER Project

  title={Development of a Low-Cost SubScale Aircraft for Flight Research : The FASER Project},
  author={D. Bruce Owens and David E. Cox and Eugene A. Morelli},
An inexpensive unmanned sub-scale aircraft was developed to conduct frequent flight test experiments for research and demonstration of advanced dynamic modeling and control design concepts. This paper describes the aircraft, flight systems, flight operations, and data compatibility including details of some practical problems encountered and the solutions found. The aircraft, named Free-flying Aircraft for Sub-scale Experimental Research, or FASER, was outfitted with high-quality… CONTINUE READING
