I see mention of the code for the Transwing being done on Ardupilot. It looks pretty clever. Is it out in the wild yet? Thanks
Hello all. Matthew Graczyk here. I’m the CEO of PteroDynamics. We invented the Transwing aircraft design. You can learn more about its innovations in our patent that we received just last month (https://www.pterodynamics.com/s/PteroDynamics-Inc-US-Patent-10252798-Vertical-Takeoff-and-Landing-Aircraft.PDF).
We are huge supporters of Ardupilot and the open source community. Although we have patented the Transwing and reserve the right to control what commercial applications it’s used for, we enthusiastically support people building their own Transwing aircraft for non-commercial purposes, and we want to do anything and everything we can to help them.
If you are interested in building your own Transwing aircraft, please reach out to us at Info@PteroDynamics.com and let us know how we can help. We have a lot more tricks up our sleeve that did not make it into the patent that we can share to help you make your Transwing that much better.
Also, we are actively looking to hire someone to help us program Ardupilot for some models we are building. These are very exciting projects, so please send us an email at Info@PteroDynamics.com if you think you can help.
Matthew, Thanks for the reply and I will be sending you an email shortly. I am interested in this both personally and professionally.
