Evaluation of design parameters for VTOL fixed wing aircraft are simplified and speeded up by the use of this digital variable stability system. This paper details the extensive preparation for developing the overall system and explains how and why the various subsystems were chosen. These development processes reflect guide lines for successful VTOL design practices, besides providing a truly flexible and complete system that allows various testing techniques to be devised so as to obtain meaningful and repeatable data.
