Hi Michal, Russel,
> I assume there will be lots of vibrations due to jet engine, so you will need higher quality sensors for start.
That might be a problem. Maybe the influence on the acceleration sensors and gyros can be minimized by cushening the IMU
such that the most dominant frequencies get attenuated (just enough)!?
Also I'd use an airflow sensor to improve the control loops.
Another way around the vibrations would be to use filters or even adaptive filters.
Anyway imho the plane should be designed such, that any vibrations or flutter is minimized.
> so a simple PID control might not be sufficient in auto1/2 mode
Imho: It should be well tuned.
I think auto 1 (attitude control) should work just fine as long as the aircraft is dynamically stable.
Although at 300 km/h one will surely loose the line of sight to the aircraft pretty soon.
Thus I'd be more concerned about the telemetry, since most of the radios for RC-craft (I've used and seen)
are made for reliable transmissions in a line of sight.

I was also thinking of this, but I'm lacking experience on this matter.

Well afaik even the simplest system of equations describing fixed-wing UAVs or MAVs are non-linear.
Imho that's why the control loops are normally split into two loops (horizontal and vertical).
In case the "flight mechanics" of this model plane are truely "grossly non-linear", it would be - in my opinion - a waste of money to
even buy it as an RC craft since as a human being you are surely unable to fly it well without any autopilot.
On youtube there are quite a few - imho genuine - videos of (experienced?) people flying RC jetplanes manually:
If you are a beginner when it comes to ppz, I'd suggest that you start with a slower aircraft.
I recommend the Bixler/EasyJet :)
It is very robust, mine still flies well although I introduced it to quite a number of trees.
