Abstract : This program was originated for the purpose of developing a flight control system for helicopters and V/STOL vehicles. The design utilizes force stick steering and parallel servo installation with full, mechanical back-up. The system stabilizes the vehicle in all four axes with additional features such as altitude hold velocity hold, turn coordination, and attitude hold. (Author)
