Thought I’d start a thread based on a new concept I’m working on. Basically, this is a reverse tricopter using the QuadPlane code with a twist. At the centre of the frame, I’m adding a EDF unit at the centre (C.G) that will provide (some) vertical thrust in QHOVER and then rotate to horizontal position for foward flight.
I have succeeded in getting the tricopter to hover (with tail rotor facing forward). The question I have for the Dev team, how can I drive the EDF in hover so that some thrust is derived from throttle position and then rotate the EDF when switching into forward flight? The EDF will provide forward thrust in cruise. Wings not shown in image.
