Locking propellers at certain angle in fixed wing mode flight for quad planes


(ISHMAEL) #1

Hi Guys,

Still busy with my quad plane build project, wanted to find out if anyone has any knowledge of configuring in mission planner propellers to be locked at a certain angle after shifting from VTOL to fixed-wing flight mode in order to reduce drag forces? I am using PX4 cube autopilot.

Nope, it is not possible without additional electronic and/or mechanical solution.

Magnets.

Also, MonashUAV had some very cool stuff to align the props on their
Medical Challenge aircraft…
