Aircraft Lateral - Directional Control System help

  1. Nov 23, 2009 #1

    I am in a aircraft dynamics and control class. I am supposed to design a lateral - Directional control system for a UAV in simulink. i.e the plane is starting from North - 0 , East - 0 and 10000ft altitude, and is to go to a way point at some distance N , E and remain at 10,000 alt.

    I already have the longitudinal auto pilot programmed to stay at 10000 ft , im just totally lost do to the coupling of yaw and roll.

    It is a 6 Degree of Freedom model. I was advised by the professor to use heading and bank angle into a PID to the ailerons.

    Can anyone offer some advice on this?
