After some succes with the QuadRanger we developed we decided to step it up and convert this Skywalker X8 to VTOL. And this was it's maiden (autonomous) flight
It was outfitted with the PX4 flightstack too which I recently added the VTOL_TAKEOFF and VTOL_LAND support.
The maiden flight of the DeltaQuad was a succes. It slightly overshot it's landing site due to a miscalibration of the airspeed sensor (it was flying faster then measured). Still it made for a very smooth flight.
In the next few weeks we will start payload and endurance testing, based on the current data it looks like it could carry a 1-2 kg payload for a distance of around 80km.
The build serves as a prototype for the modules/platforms that we (DronesLab) aim to produce and make available this year.
I'm very interested in your thoughts, idea's and comments so feel free to drop a line!
