Ideas for simulation input to NN

I got this generous input from one of the XFOIL's usergroup. These ideas give a better simulation for the copter than the one's I have hacked already since the suggested tools are more mature and worked on by the experts in the field. 

Amazing thing I

NN accuracy for quad copter


Single layer of 64 neurons with 8 input and outputs and learning rate set to 0.1. 

Training cases created for vertical take off. The Universal Approximate was constructed for smooth function:

CONTROL: Vn+1 --> Vn 

V is {motor1, motor2, motor3, mot

Slow User Trainer


As a beginner Arducopter user, I think an NN application to take off and land Arducopter semi-manullly is great. 

In other words a super slow take off indoors or outdoors can allow the new user to learn the controls at an RC and learn the caveats

Need these parameters for ArduCopter

1. Drag Coefficient 

2. Thrust Coefficient 

3. Rotor Inertia (I assume this depends on the motors)

These are needed to train a particular ArduCopter off-line. And would you be kind and mention how can I measure those for my own ArduCopter.

Quad Copter simulation data

Does anyone has Quad Copter simulation data for a simple vertical take off?

If possible could I have an ASCII dump?

Could we have one with a bit of wind?

I would like to use  this data for off-line training for a NN control to test.
