PLATFORM DESCRIPTION

 

This hybrid aircraft has an airplane – quadcopter integrated structure. Its control is performed by using typicals surfaces control for an airplane configuration during plane phases:

  • PITCH
  • ROLL
  • YAW
  • THRUST

and a differential thrust for each quadcopter motor depending on the desired attitude change during quadcopter phases.

The two transition phases are the most critical, in fact, it is important to keep the aircraft control during plane-quadcopter changing avoiding command overlaps.
