System ID flights with Thor using augmented manual inputs. The pilot was given manual control in the axis of the chirp, and was denied inputs on the remaining surfaces. A baseline controller was used to control the off-axis. The pilot was instructed to obtain a hands-off trim before injecting the automatic chirp signal. The entire team attended to get a feel for flight test operations. Austin's last flight test. Software used was trunk/Software/FlightCode rev 802. Flight 39 was dedicated to obtaining doublet sequences. There were 4 elevator doublets, followed by 5 aileron, and 4 rudder doublets. The amplitude in the aileron and rudder channels (in particular, the rudder channel) were noted to be too small, and these amplitudes were increased in the subsequent Flight 40.
