Micro air vehicles (MAVs) have a wide range of applications both in commercial and in military applications. Payloads ranging from cameras to acoustics to weapons, MAVs allow for a various applications within the three-dimensional freedom of the sky. MAVs are remotely controlled by radio control system and are difficult to fly due to its unconventional design and sometimes due to unpredictable flight characteristics. The maximum deflection of the control surfaces is limited by the mechanical linkages that connect the actuators to the control surfaces. Ground pilot control signals from the radio-control system are decoded by the capture unit of the on-board computer. A computer-supervised scheduler enables the controller inputs and driving scenarios, in a time-indexed manner. To record the controller’s response to the given time indexed stimuli, data are logged from both the simulator and controller with the integrated data acquisition system.
