Abstract

This paper presents estimation algorithms for flight dynamics of small unmanned aircraft. The estimates are mainly based on geometric information. Optional information taken into account are airfoil polars, a few mass characteristics and static thrust measurements. The aerodynamics dataset is estimated using the Vortex Lattice Method. Weight-and-balance estimates are driven by assuming constant mass per surface. Propulsion is estimated based on typical characteristics. The model is compared to higher-fidelity models, namely wind-tunnel measurements and inertia measurements. The differences to the reference are typically below 20% of the aerodynamic coefficients and below 10% of the reference inertia.
