In aviation, the moments of inertia estimate how quickly an aircraft rotates. There are three moments of inertia, each along an aircraft axis (e.g. X-Y-Z). The aerodynamic coefficients characterize the forces and moments acting on an aircraft during flight. They are non-dimensional and facilitate the aerodynamic forces and moments calculation. This technical report includes the calculations carried out to obtain the mass moment of inertia matrix and the aerodynamic coefficients that will serve as a base for the EPP FPV aircraft configuration file in JSBSim. However, these parameters can be used for the development of any EPP FPV computer model under any flight simulator.
