An underactuated propeller for attitude control in micro air vehicles

 We derive thrust, roll, and pitch authority from a single propeller and single motor through an underactuated mechanism embedded in the rotor itself. This allows new types of conventionally-capable micro air vehicles which only require two motors for practical control. This contrasts with the many servos and linkages of conventional helicopters or the many drive motors found in quadrotors. Conventional UAV formats applied to smaller and smaller micro air vehicles lead to significant design…See More

"I am surprised to see there are no RCx_FUNCTION parameters anymore. I assume you are simplifying the whole thing. So how can I configure the Camera Trigger settings?"

The THOR prototype can transition from hover to fixed-wing cruise mode by rotating its wings into alignment

Conventional multicopter drones are excellent at hovering and VTOL, but they can't cover long distances as efficiently as fixed-wing aircraft. A team of students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design is trying to get the best of both worlds with the Transformable HOvering…
