Could vector control of the front motors be used not only for yaw but also for forward flight ? This could reduce battery consumption:
It costs a lot of power to fight nose down against the wind due to downforce on the wings. Here is an example, as at 15 kph headwind the climbing ability decreased to zero and current inreased significantly. I then let the VTOL drift backwards with the wind and was thus able to win a safe height for forwardtransition.
Especially at the end of the flight with an almost empty battery vector control could save time (and batterycapacity) while exact reaching the desired landingpoint in windy conditions. We ask from expirience at the end of today’s flight (Backtransition at 09:05)
