VTOL fixed-wing simulation in Gazebo

#1

Hi, I would like to simulate VTOL fixed-wing in Gazebo (SITL and HITL). I’ve already checked VTOL Quad Planes models that are available in Gazebo and I found only “standard_vtol” that is not fixed-wing VTOL. While watching the videos from PX4 YouTube channel, I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifn4k6Rtkrc with the VTOL fixed wing, but it was uploaded in 2016. I have the following question:
Is this model visible in above video (fixed-wing VTOL) is still available somewhere and what i need to do to run it with the new version of PX4 (release 1.8.2) and Gazebo?
if not what steps I will need to do to create and run this new model?.

Best Regards,
Adam

The “standard VTOL” is a fixed-wing VTOL - ie what is known as a Quadplane: http://dev.px4.io/en/simulation/gazebo.html#standard-vtol

There is also a tailsitter.
