[Full Text]



Pann Nu Wai Lin, Nang Lao Kham, Hla Myo Tun



Longitudinal, Lateral, Transfer function, State Space System, Stability



In this paper presents work completed for flight characteristics, mathematical model of an aircraft are the focus. To construct the mathematical model, type of UAV and flying mode quality must be chosen firstly.Longitudinal command hold outputs and lateral outputs (slide slip velocity, yaw rate, heading angle, and roll angle) must be considered to control the desired flight conditions.
