Take off and landing with VTOL in the forest

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

To see the whole VTOL here one picture:

It is the first Wingcopter of our serial production. The tilt arms are redesigned and more stable than at the earlier version. On our website there are some more pictures of the new one:

OK This begs the question...does it use Arducopter or Arduplane code??

Comment by Jared M on August 16, 2013 at 5:15pm

How much does one of these things cost?  I would love to get one!!!

@Nathaniel: It use the Arducopter code 2.9.1

@Jared: You may have a look into our shop. There are several kits available ;)

Jonathan,

Very impressive! Arducopter code really was the only choice. It was more of an ice breaker comment :D I am particularly impressed with how well it transitions from vertical to horizontal flight. I look forward to seeing how it develops with time.

Congratulations!

Impressive indeed!  It already looks very refined based on the flight and transitions.  Are the fixed wing controls always active?

@Jared goto the shop, its available in kit and rtf.

@Jonathan

Did you guys spend billions on development like the US military on the Osprey ?

Comment by Chris Riccio on August 16, 2013 at 7:52pm

Great job Jonathan! It's nice to see something being put into a kit for others to buy. 

Have any inspiration from the guys in the video's below?

Very nice. I think I have found my next flyer...

Is the code standard (as in can it be updated when arducopter gets updated) or have proprietary changes been done?
