Keywords: control, tiltwing, transition, uav
In this contribution a transition control concept of a Tiltwing UAV is presented which allows enhanced low speed operations beyond common aerodynamic stall velocities. The basic principle is an adaption of the main wing tilt angle combined with a consequent thrust adjustment corresponding to a requested velocity.
