"I'm working on a tilt-rotor counter-rotating octo with wings optimized for tandem orientation (so that the engines will be inline similar to your craft). The airframe is full CF and sits on a 2m x 2m footprint. It utilizes horizontal and…"

"Just curious if you would be able to put a pusher or puller prop on this that kicks in at a certain speed. If so, it would take over for the vertical props (assuming it were a hybrid quad/plane) once you get above the stall speed."

"As I look at the set up, what if the angles opposed casing the rear apparent lift like a gyro copter, may require collective pitch, and front becoming forward thrust... Comments?"

"What you see there is ONLY using APM 2.5.    The only reason I mention the KK Board is because of OpenAero2-VTOL.  I'm using a FrySky Taranis, and connecting to the APM via SBus/CPPM using a convert.  That gives me all 16…"

"Bill be careful, aren't you using a "bad" word there? APM Only on this discussion group. You are going to take the "other" board code and convert it to APM ?"

"I'm working on one too.  I should have full tilt control soon.   It can carry an airplane or car.  What I want to do is integrate APM with OpenAeroVTOL for the Hobbyking KK Board. "

"OK... Going to try a build like this... More Spacar 64 ... Will have the tilt controlled via central servo and will only function after airspeed in the forward direction is plus 10kph."

"@R_Lefebvre, what you are describing sounds like a compound eye of an insect. Also, I don't think that anyone has mentioned this, but the human eye essentially has a gimbal system (it even "rolls" when we tilt our head from side to…"

"Hey there Nice little thing you going on there. I was wondering what's the torque rating for the servos you are using, and how did you came to choose that rating? Keep on the good work! Cheers "

About Me:
I built my first RC airplane when I was 12. It was of the gas powered balsa variety and had a wing-span longer than I was tall. I've still got the bug, although more interested in helis and multirotors these days.

iQuad Tilt-Rotor Quadcopter (v2) Flight Testing

Posted on November 30, 2013 at 7:25pm 24 Comments

After more than a year of design and development, I've built version 2 of the iQuad custom tilt-rotor quadcopter which is capable of achieving high forward speed by tilting its rotors forward in flight. After several days of flight testing and tuning, I was able to achieve stable hover and incredibly fast forward flight. Near the middle of the video, you can see the…

Tiltrotor Quadcopter (v2)

Posted on November 22, 2013 at 7:12pm 42 Comments

A few months ago, I posted some video and pictures of a tilt-rotor quadcopter called iQuad. Since then, I've been working on building a new version of iQuad which is lighter, has a cleaner design, and adds FPV. The new iQuad weighs 1600 grams w/o batteries (down from 2260) thanks to a carbon fiber body and…

iQuad - Tilt Rotor Quadcopter

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 10:30pm 9 Comments

 

I just finished building a tilt-rotor quadcopter. I started the project about a year ago, starting with a 3DRobotics quad frame to learn the ropes. At this point, the only thing that remains from the original quad is the APM and ESCs.

I planned to add wings on the arms to allow the quad to generate lift while flying forward, but I…
