Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents a flight and ground testing data set for a trainer-type unmanned aircraft, a Great Planes Avistar Elite, which is in the series of aircraft data sets that are being published online and freely available as part of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Database (UAVDB). The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Database is being continually expanded to include many aircraft as they are tested. This paper includes: flight testing data and ground measurement and testing results. The ground testing yielded 3D scanning geometry, computational tool models, moment of inertia values, and propeller performance. Flight testing results as well as testing and setup techniques are also be presented in this paper. Additionally, details regarding aircraft construction and instrumentation are provided.
