Im currently working with a friend on an Airship. The goal is to make a vehicle that takes off and lands vertically and can tilt its motors horizontally during the flight. We chose to go for an architecture with 4 motor in H configuration for more stability during take off and landing and a reasonable speed (around 30km/h or 19mph). All the motors will be attached to the gondola below the balloon.
I have already started to look for motors, batteries and esc models.
But i have some remaining questions:
What about the controller hardware ? Any advices ?
What about the software ? I saw that arduplane include Vtol Plane but what about VTOL airship ? Would there be a lot of adjustments to do to accomodate the flight dynamics of an airship ?
Wouldn’t it be simpler and faster to simply rebuild the whole code from scratch rather than try to reuse bits of code made for planes of quadcopters ?
Thanks a lot,
