Abstract

Within the framework of a NASA STTR program, we designed and developed a 1/5 dynamically scaled model of the Aeromot (AMT) 200S motor glider ("SuperXimango"). This model is one element in a "tool box" for scaled model flight research that also includes wind/water tunnel experiments, aerodynamic design tools, and computational fluid dynamics. This 1/5 dynamically scaled model of the Aeromot 200S SuperXimango is awaiting flight testing which will allow for a validation and verification of the scaling by comparison with full scale flight test data. An important criterion in the design and development of the flight model is its ability to serve as a versatile platform for developing and testing of novel technologies. Therefore, great emphasis was placed on a modular design and construction so that certain modules can be easily exchanged.
