Simulate the Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion Controller for the longitudinal dynamics of a small aircraft described by Stevens & Lewis (2003) pp 495-500 (also see Example problem 2.4-1, pp 140-141)
The code is based on the codes provided in Stevens & Lewis (2003), Figures 5.8-6 & 5.8-7.
We have tried to keep the same structure and variable names although these seem to be based on FORTRAN code.
Thus the code and structure could be improved. We have also corrected a few errors in the original code, particularly with the definition of C* which needs modifying to work with a nonlinear controller.
