I am sorry if this might be a basic question but I am exploring Arduplane to use to control a VTOL fixed wing aircraft that has 4 motors that all tilt at once thanks to a servo.
Reading through Ardupilot website I see that part of the tilt-rotor configurations supported are:
tilt-quadplanes with all four motors tilting
So I presume this should cover my needs?
What I am interested in is to be able to use the very same motors in vertical and horizontal flight (no surfaces) to control all rotations (yaw, roll pitch). In particular, I also would like the autopilot to automatically switch roll to yaw once level so it can be flown intuitively with the RC.
Assuming it does suit my needs, I have a slight issue that someone may be able to help with:
I followed the best I could the set-up instructions on the website and when I got to assigning my servo to tilt and tried to test the servo, I couldn't get it to work (my understanding is that he servo should change position when going from Qstabilise to Manual?)
Would anyone be kind enough to a) confirm that as it stands Arduplane is indeed able to do what I am trying to do, b) clarify how to assign a servo and then how to test it?
