VTOL Controller

#1

Hi dear all,

I want to consult you about the attitude and position controller for VTOL UAV’s. Normally there exists a multicopter attitude/position controller and a fixed wing attitude/position controller. In VTOL UAV’s how is the controller? Is there a separate controller or is the autopilot uses both MC and FW controllers and makes transitions between them when needed?

If yes, how is the mixing/transition between the MC and FW controllers during the transition phase from hover to cruising flight? What about the gains. Is there any difference for tilt-rotors? Could you please make a detailed comment.

Thanks and best regards.
