The following files are included to help students with the project outlined in the book. We have found that if students start with these files, that they can generally do the project in about 3 hours per chapter. Full solutions to the project are available to instructors upon request. We respectfully ask that students and instructors do not post full solutions to the project anywhere on the web. The project creates an excellent learning experience and we believe that anyone who works the project for themselves will be much better equipped to make contributions to the state of the art in small unmanned air vehicles. - RWB & TWM

As you find typos and errors in the book, please send us an email. We will post the errors on this page and work with Princeton University Press to ensure that they do not propagate to future printings. - RWB & TWM
All corrections and additions in the supplement will be incorporated into a future second edition of the book.
Our intention is to occasionally add supplemental material to this page. We would also welcome contributions from the broader community. If you are interested in adding material, please contact the authors.
