A linear approximation is then considered using an ARX modeling technique
in Matlab. This shows a good correlation with the data for the 24 in and the 12 in
MAV. However, further studies have to be considered for the modeling of the 12 in
MAV since it is being morphed asymmetrically by curling one wing at a time. This
then introduces nonlinearities in the flight characteristics which have to be considered
in modeling approximations. The 24 in MAV can be approximated linearly since the
morphing is being induced with symmetric wing twisting.
