"very nice! I've caught the tailsitter bug too, I'm building another one now. For takeoff/landing I've been thinking of putting servos on the front two motor arms so they can tilt. Then if the vehicle is lying flat on the ground it can…"

"Nice work. Looking forward to seeing the autonomous takeoff/landing sequences as well. Those control surfaces on the nose are brilliant. Props to TUDelft and ENAC. Cheers."

Hybrid vehicle. Mayden flight of Cyfoam.

The Cyfoam is a hybrid vehicle developed at ENAC Drone Lab. The aircraft is a foamy, with a 3D printed fuselage, version of the composite-made Cyclone, i.e., before risking the expensive one, we committed the first flights with this foamy version. The vehicle is powered by the new Paparazzi autopilot board Chimera! which executes the control algorithm for…See More

"Mmm I am a bit confused. So, this +31% more on sales is not only about Consumer drones? (so far their most profitable segment according to Parrot). Indeed, they say that the margins went lower. No idea whether these new margins make the product…"

Circle formations of fixed-wings in Paparazzi

Posted on February 19, 2017 at 4:00pm 6 Comments

We have recently developed and tested a formation control algorithm for fixed-wings in Paparazzi. The position of an arbitrary number of vehicles can be controlled in a circular path. In fact, we are not restricting ourselves to circles but to any closed orbit, such as ellipses, thanks to the …

Guidance algorithm for tracking smooth trajectories

Posted on November 5, 2016 at 8:32am 12 Comments

 

I have written with my friend Yuri Kapitanyuk (the main idea was from him) an algorithm for solving the problem of tracking smooth curves by an unmanned aerial vehicle travelling with a constant airspeed and under a wind disturbance. Basically, if the trajectories are twice differentiable, i.e., they are continuous,…

An autonomous fixed-wing following another autonomous one

Posted on October 25, 2016 at 2:55pm 0 Comments

We have presented this video to the kids during our open days a couple of weeks ago at ENAC, Toulouse. It is just one application of a guidance algorithm that we have developed and later implemented in Paparazzi. I was actually surprised about the performance since the planes only exchange information once per second (even we allow some…
