"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…"

"The reason software stabilization won't completely replace mechanical stabilization any time soon is the physics of light. It might work in bright sunlight, where there are lots of photons, and you can do fast exposures, but as soon as you have…"

"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 "

"Your concern with the "rotors tilt forward" the control for roll and yaw start to swap maybe similar to a problem during the early testing of the Osprey V-22 project. This could be Vortex Ring State. See Wikipedia Vortex Ring State."

"I got most of the stuff from servocity. The shafts are 5/8", aluminum. Carbon fiber would work, but probably not save a lot of weight. Most of the added weight is in the tilt mechanism, landing gear, motor mounts, etc... The tubes are…"

"Fantastic job on the tilt rotor.  I'm working on something similar.  I'm curious as to where you got the shaft bearings and motor mounts, and the size of the shaft the motors are mounted too.  They almost look like stainless…"

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 25 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 37 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…
