Abstract

This paper proposes a seamless 90-degree attitude transition flight of a quad tilt-rotor UAV under full position control. The quad tilt-rotor UAV enables independent position and attitude control by additional actuators for changing the thrust directions. Therefore, the quad tilt-rotor UAV can hover with different attitudes. However, in the previous research, because the two attitude controls are switched in large attitude transition, the difficulty in certain tilting attitudes were observed. This study aims at developing a control method for realizing a seamless attitude transition flight under full position control. The flight experiment verifies the proposed method.
