6.9 UAS settings
An aircraft is
equipped with flight control surfaces to allow the pilot to adjust and control
its heading and altitude. These so-called 'rudders' allow the aircraft to
rotate around three axes. Fixed-wing UAS rotate around these axes differently
than multi-rotor UAS.
6.3.1 Flight control surfaces on fixed-wing UAS
control surfaces used to control a fixed-wing UAS are:
