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)

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 10 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…

Are you still working in the title rotor?

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.
