TU Delft's biplane helicopter delftAcopter flies with a single propeller

Researchers at TU Delft have developed a new hybrid drone that takes off like a helicopter before tilting 90 degrees and then continuing to fly like an aircraft. The drone does this using mainly a single large propeller, which means that it has hardly any unnecessary control actuators on board when in flight. This makes the unmanned aircraft, known as the ‘delftAcopter’, suitable for providing medical aid in difficult to reach areas, for example. From 27 to 29 September, the drone will be competing in Australia's UAV Medical Express Challenge.
