Methodology to Determine the Stall Speed in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Thought Flight Tests 2010-36-0282
In this article, a methodology for flight tests to determine the stall speed is adapted for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). The UAV is equipped with a system of data acquisition to store the variables related to the stall speed during the flight of the aircraft. Next the data is processed to determine the stall characteristics of the aircraft and consequently its stall speed. The results are compared with analytical calculations to validate the proposed methodology.
