PX4 has been supporting tailsitters [video], tilt rotors [video] and quad planes since over half a year now and is constantly refining the performance. This video from Marco Robustini shows the latest testing results.
Can you share a photo? It's work with only two motors? This works with different code than arduplane?
Looks nice :D
Here I found the info https://pixhawk.org/platforms/vtol/tbs_caipirinha_vtol ;
Really cool !!!, I have a Phantom flying wing waiting in a box for something like this :)
I'm developing a (gigantic) flying wing VTOL where all 4 of the motors rotate to forward during transition. This is like a mix of the tilt rotor and quad plane design.Just a quick question: the Pixhawk / APM does not support this architecture currently, correct? If not I may go with the tailsitter takeoff or program onto the flight stack myself.
Transition actuation is provided by four independent servos.
Photo of the architecture:
@Jonny Hyman: PX4 supports all sorts of tilt rotors and tailsitters. Here is the dev documentation how to run it on your Pixhawk: http://dev.px4.io/airframes-vtol.html
this is real VTOL. just two motors and still so stable in hover mode. a new era in drone code has begun. amazing!
can someone pls suggest how to download code from Px4 github. I had been mostly using mission planner to upload the firmwares.
Its all documented here: http://px4.io/docs/autopilot-configuration/
And the airframe specific configuration here: http://dev.px4.io/airframes-vtol-caipiroshka.html
