A trajectory control problem for simple micro air vehicles (MAVs) is introduced and studied. The MAVs are endowed with the ability to estimate their position and velocity and can control their drag coefficient. The objective of this work is to design a control law for the drag coefficient in order to land the MAV close to a desired streamwise location, after being dropped from an airborne carrier at low altitude. We use a simple model-predictive control law, relying on a two-dimensionaldoi:10.2514/1.11858 fatcat:mogtqpos75ec7ginues5lg3biq
