Abstract:In this thesis we describe the design, manufacturing, and testing of a dynamically scaled aircraft, which is a scaled model of a general aviation vehicle that dynamically behaves in a similar manner as the full-scale aircraft. This scaled model (Cirrus SR22T) is to serve as a testbed for both Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) aircraft research and for Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) research. The aircraft is used as a baseline to compare with the DEP aircraft, to draw conclusion regarding the effect of changing to a DEP configuration, and to provide a way to measure the effect that a DEP configuration would have on a full-scale aircraft. The aircraft is also used to collect data from various onboard sensors to provide a data set for the VIO research community to use.
