  • More specifically has anyone on DIY Drones interfaced a gyrocopter to an ArduPlane platform.

    • I gave it a lot of thought and I think a developer would need to take this on.  They fly like copters (lots of rudder action) but they will blade stall really fast.  I think you would need an rpm sensor and air speed sensor at the very least.  After building one and watching them fly a lot I think getting vibration out would be tough.  They shake a lot.  Not that it can't be done done but its a lot of work. I think px4 vtol and others will win the race for hybrids.  But until they can use variable pitch props they are not too efficient either.  People want a VTOL with at least 1hr flight times.  

  • Arduplane will do the job.
