Switching between arducopter and arduplane

Hi evryone

I’m new to Px4. I want to switch between aducopter mode and arduplane mode using Pixhawk only. what’s the steps to do that and should I do some coding. From what I can see that we are using Linux and I’m not familiar with that. Can I use C++ to do the code if it’s needed.

Thank you

Thank you Andreas for your reply.

Do you have any idea how to use the pixhawk because that what I have and I need to switch between two modes.

Maybe you explain what xou are trying to archive? Sound to me like a VTOL vehicle for which PX4 offers some Support as well.

yes it’s like a VTOL vehicle. I will explain in details what I had before and what I did. I had naza 2 controller and I had the epsilon modes. the problem was that when I was trying to do the transition, I faced some issues in Roll and Pitch. Now I want to switch between thw Hcopter mode and fixed wing mode using PX4.

I don’t have a VTOL, but maybe what you are trying to archive is possible by using a VTOL Configuration in PX4 Stack. Have a look here: https://pixhawk.org/platforms/vtol/start

Thank you Andreas for your help

The information you are looking for is here http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/quadplane-support.html

Ardupilot has full VTOL support on many vertical motor and fixed wing configurations. The majority of the contestants of the outback challenge used it… including the winner.
