---AMAZON MARKETPLACE: PAY MORE, WAIT LONGER AND GET A USED BOOK!--- In 1993, when Microsoft began using the tag 'as real as it gets' on its flight simulators it was with a degree of artistic licence. Twenty years on, Microsoft has left the party but its legacy remains in Flight Simulator X and its cousin Prepare3D, developed by Lockheed Martin. But while display technology and sophisticated flight controls make suspension of disbelief ever easier, a wall remains between the bedroom aviator and his virtual cockpit; nothing intrudes more than having to reach for the mouse to flip the switches.In the quest for true hardware control of their cockpits flight-sim enthusiasts walk an uneasy line between eye-wateringly expensive professional solutions and too-generic consumer units. The alternative is D.I.Y. This guide takes you end-to-end through - and beyond - the construction of scratch-built panels to control the FSX GPS and autopilot with no mouse or keyboard required. Using no more than basic DIY tools and a modicum of patience you can build professional-quality panels to navigate your default or payware aircraft on the GPS500 GPS or, for the more ambitious, on payware systems from Mindstar or Reality-XP. You can build a generic autopilot based on the Bendix King KFC 225 to hook into most of your default General Aviation aircraft and many payware add-ons.Based on the experience of developing a scratch-built cockpit from the ground up, this guide features step-by-step instructions, many photographs and invaluable background information that will help you make your cockpit as real as it gets.

Advanced Flight Dynamics with Elements of Flight Control

Author: Nandan K. Sinha
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781498746069
Release Date: 2017-06-27
Genre: Science

Advanced Flight Dynamics aim to integrate the subjects of aircraft performance, trim and stability/control in a seamless manner. Advanced Flight Dynamics highlights three key and unique viewpoints. Firstly, it follows the revised and corrected aerodynamic modeling presented previously in recent textbook on Elementary Flight Dynamics. Secondly, it uses bifurcation and continuation theory, especially the Extended Bifurcation Analysis (EBA) procedure devised by the authors, to blend the subjects of aircraft performance, trim and stability, and flight control into a unified whole. Thirdly, rather than select one control design tool or another, it uses the generalized Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion (NDI) methodology to illustrate the fundamental principles of flight control. Advanced Flight Dynamics covers all the standard airplane maneuvers, various types of instabilities normally encountered in flight dynamics and illustrates them with real-life airplane data and examples, thus bridging the gap between the teaching of flight dynamics/ control theory in the university and its practice in airplane design bureaus. The expected reader group for this book would ideally be senior undergraduate and graduate students, practicing aerospace/flight simulation engineers/scientists from industry as well as researchers in various organizations. Key Features: Focus on unified nonlinear approach, with nonlinear analysis tools. Provides an up-to-date, corrected, and unified presentation of aircraft trim, stability and control analysis including nonlinear phenomena and closed-loop stability analysis. Contains a computational tool and real-life example carried through the chapters. Includes complementary nonlinear dynamic inversion control approach, with relevant aircraft examples. Fills the gap in the market for a text including non-linear flight dynamics and continuation methods.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Principles of Flight Simulation is a comprehensive guide to flight simulator design, covering the modelling, algorithms and software which underpin flight simulation. The book covers the mathematical modelling and software which underpin flight simulation. The detailed equations of motion used to model aircraft dynamics are developed and then applied to the simulation of flight control systems and navigation systems. Real-time computer graphics algorithms are developed to implement aircraft displays and visual systems, covering OpenGL and OpenSceneGraph. The book also covers techniques used in motion platform development, the design of instructor stations and validation and qualification of simulator systems. An exceptional feature of Principles of Flight Simulation is access to a complete suite of software (www.wiley.com/go/allerton) to enable experienced engineers to develop their own flight simulator – something that should be well within the capability of many university engineering departments and research organisations. Based on C code modules from an actual flight simulator developed by the author, along with lecture material from lecture series given by the author at Cranfield University and the University of Sheffield Brings together mathematical modeling, computer graphics, real-time software, flight control systems, avionics and simulator validation into one of the faster growing application areas in engineering Features full colour plates of images and photographs.
