About Me:

I am a PhD student at Delft University of Technology. My research is on the topic of control for hybrid drones (VTOL with forward flight capability).


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I am interested in UAV control, especially in new ideas with practical applicability. Also, I like to keep it simple.

@Charles This was not really a point of concern for this research. My…"

"Thanks Bart! The Wingtra is also a cool project, but I think they don't publish anymore since they started a company. That is why I don't think there is enough information available for such a conclusion, based solely on this paper:…"

Together, the Dronelab at ENAC in Toulouse and the MAVLab at TU Delft have developed the Cyclone. It is a hybrid drone of the tailsitter type, with just 4 actuators. In the video, we show autonomous flight, ranging from hover to forward flight.…
