Title
(EN) AUTONOMOUS FLIGHT VEHICLE CAPABLE OF FIXED WING FLIGHT AND ROTARY WING FLIGHT
(FR) VÉHICULE DE VOL AUTONOME CAPABLE DE VOL À VOILURE FIXE ET DE VOL À VOILURE TOURNANTE
Abstract
(EN)
An autonomous flight vehicle capable of both rotary wing flight and fixed wing flight may include a pair of rotary wing flight thrusters used during rotary wing flight and a smaller pair of hybrid flight thrusters used during both rotary wing flight and fixed wing flight. The larger rotary wing flight thrusters are skewed at an angle to reduce an apparent torque and improve the controllability of the autonomous flight vehicle, while using smaller, and so more efficient, thrusters during fixed wing flight.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un véhicule de vol autonome capable à la fois de vol à voilure tournante et de vol à voilure fixe et pouvant comprendre une paire de propulseurs de vol à voilure tournante utilisés pendant un vol à voilure tournante et une paire plus petite de propulseurs de vol hybrides utilisés pendant à la fois un vol à voilure tournante et un vol à voilure fixe. Les propulseurs de vol à voilure tournante plus grands sont inclinés selon un angle pour réduire un couple apparent et améliorer la contrôlabilité du véhicule à vol autonome, tout en utilisant des propulseurs plus petits et plus efficaces pendant un vol à voilure fixe.
