Hover with a 3D acrobatic plane?

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a flight mode for ArduPlane to prop hang. I am currently using a 3d acrobatic plane to work out any bugs etc before moving to a more UAV style plane. My idea is if it possible to set up a flight mode "hover". the plane would harrier then hover or prop hang at the set gps and alt.

  • Any work on this lately? Seems like it would be a relatively light and non-mechanically-complex alternative to tilt rotors and the like. Though... weight would be more limited, so maybe not a heavy duty uav, but I still like the idea.

  • in 2014 theres still no option to hold a fixed wing plane in any orientation such as knife edge or 3D hover.

    I'm guessing it'll be along soon now that Pixhawk is with us.

    in the meantime, my solution is to fit an Eagletree Guardian in series with Pixhawk.

    If I want to do aerobatics I select Manual on Pixhawk and activate 3D mode on Guardian - its fantastic!

    if I find ive flown too far away, I select manual on the guardian and activate RTH on Pixhawk and she toddles home to Daddy

    cheers

  • Hi,

    It is not available but it is certainly possible to develop it. I had it working once with a home made flight controller.

    If it has to hover using height control and navigation, you will have to write more than just a little code; it will be a combination of features from ArduPlane and ArduCopter.

    Regards
