PX4 VTOL Update

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.

  • Its all documented here: http://px4.io/docs/autopilot-configuration/

  • can someone pls suggest how to download code from Px4 github. I had been mostly using mission planner to upload the firmwares.

  • this is real VTOL. just two motors and still so stable in hover mode. a new era in drone code has begun. amazing!

  • Absolutely fantastic!

  • Nice!

  • @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

  • Fantastic!

    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.

  • 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 :)
