Hi all,

Other than NASA's Greased Lightning, is anyone aware of any autonomous aircraft capable of taking off vertically, and transitioning to airplane like flight?

Thanks,

Yep, here's some video of mine. The system is capable of being fully autonomous with Pixhawk/APM controllers.

I will have a couple external videos showing takeoff-transition and approach-transition-landing in a few minutes.

Using mostly "Plane Mode" my flights average 25 minutes using the High Efficiency Motor option.
