Guidance model for fixed-wing UAVs

A `fixedwing`

object represents a reduced-order guidance model for
an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The model approximates the behavior of a closed-loop system
consisting of an autopilot controller and a fixed-wing kinematic model for 3-D
motion.

This object requires you to install the UAV Library for Robotics System
Toolbox™. To install add-ons, use `roboticsAddons`

and select the desired add-on.

For multirotor UAVs, see `multirotor`

.

`model = fixedwing`

creates a fixed-wing motion model with
`double`

precision values for inputs, outputs, and configuration parameters
of the guidance model.

`model = fixedwing(DataType)`

specifies the data type precision
(`DataType`

property) for the inputs, outputs, and configurations
parameters of the guidance model.
