Date: 8/1/12 Location: Fairview Ave & W Dudley Ave, St. Paul MN Aircraft: Thor Pilot: Arion Mangio (driver) Flights: 4 driving tests with Thor Weather Sunny, temps around 90F. METAR (St. Paul Downtown): KSTP 011953Z 24011G18KT 10SM FEW120 32/21 A2981 Adhika, Andrei, Arion, and Will arrived at Fairview & Dudley Ave at 3 pm to run some tests related to the faulty GPS/INS filtering on Thor. The airplane was strapped down to the bed of Arion's truck, which he drove in a rectangular pattern along Fairvew Ave, Field Rd N, and W Dudley Ave. All flight ops ran smoothly. The main objective for this flight test was to obtain and compare filtered GPS/INS data from Thor while the engine was at various throttle settings, while using the 16 Hz internal IMU filtering bandwidth. The second run involved a low throttle setting with flight-like manual control inputs to the actuators to simulate real flight. The filter performed well at this setting. Thor Ground 07
