This is a Bachelor thesis that deals with aircraft autopilots using FS as a bed test. It shows how to tune a PID using several methods. The methods can be used to tune FS standard autopilot but in this case a separated one was made. The reader needs some Laplace transform knowledge to follow the equations but I believe that basic Mathematical analysis and the graphs will be enough to understand.
The author is Andrea Saccomanno and myself as tutor.
