"What kind of payload can the wingcopter hold? Would changing the motors/props help?Whats the flight time?"

"Schaut gut aus. Darf ich fragen, um wie viel sich die Zeit in der Luft verlängert, wenn ihr von copter in plane-mode schaltet und überwiegend als Flugzeug unterwegs seit? Gruß, Marcus"

"Jonathan and IIya,   I'd be interested in what you thought of a tricopter configuration.  Seems like this would allow efficient forward tilt for the motors, with good alignment of the force. (apologies for the crude drawing: the rear…"

"Hey Jonathan, I pinged you at the wingcopter email address but it might be dead. Are you guys selling these? Seems like it'd be great for remote areas (where I like to fly)"

Jonathan Hesselbarth commented on Chris Anderson's blog post How hard would it be to automated a variable-pitch 3D aircraft?
"Hi Adam! Mir geht's gut, danke! The first version of our Wingcopter used the APM 1.0 with the old ardupiratesNG code. Now it is using the APM2.5 with the arducopter code 2.9.1b. Concerning the code, we made the motor outputs dependent on the…"

"@ Jonathan Hesselbarth It'll be simply wunderbar! :-) I'm already saving my money, since ordering one for Brazil will be quite expensive. Best regards."

Stephen Gienow commented on Jonathan Hesselbarth's blog post Take off and landing with VTOL in the forest
"Is it capable of autonomous take off and landing as a copter, with its flown mission as a plane?"

Jonathan Hesselbarth commented on Jonathan Hesselbarth's blog post Take off and landing with VTOL in the forest
"The wingcopter should be able to carry a 10.000 mAh lipo if it isn´t heavier than 800g. The horizontal flight time is calculated by this measured data on this site at the bottom. The air speed there was very low, maybe around 10m/s."

Marcus Wright commented on Jonathan Hesselbarth's blog post Take off and landing with VTOL in the forest
"Is your 20 min horizontal flight times at a certain speed? Can you carry 10,000 mAhr?  I think this thing has a lot possibilities.  "

"@John M. SmithThe wingcopter is very easy to fly. Like a normal quadrocopter in stable mode. In plane mode it is also easy. Maybe a little bit more difficult like normal weekend planes. It is because you need to fly with the yaw stick too. Otherwise…"

Tried just for fun to start and land with my Wingcopter in the forest :)

Here is the onboard video:

ArduVTOL - Wingcopter - Flight Report Nr.1

In order to keep you guys updated on the project's development, I'm happy to present our first flight report!

Andy and his "tripod mop"; Jonathan conducting pre-flight-tests.

The weather conditions were decent: not all that much wind, clear sight and no random short-lived rainfalls.

As we weren't…
