This paper summarizes the final project of a team of undergraduate students at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion IIT, Haifa, Israel. The team has been formed to design and build a small uninhabited aerial vehicle (UAV) to be used as an In-Flight Simulator (IFS). The IFS is envisioned as a variable stability UAV, capable of representing the flying characteristics of most currently flying UAVs. It's destined to serve as a test vehicle for advanced flight control algorithms, and as a demonstration vehicle for study courses such as "control lab" and "flight mechanics". The UAV has been built at the Technion workshop, and flew its maiden flight on April 30th, 2004.
