Tilt-rotor Hexacopter Can Dance In The Air

Posted July 12, 2017

Multicopter drone made by Voliro team (a group of 11 students from ETH Zurich) has six props and can tilt 360 degrees, allowing a staggering 12 degrees of freedom in the air. It was designed and built in nine months, and can manage a stable hover flying sideways, upside down, diagonally or any other way. Its acrobatic capabilities are more or less unlimited, but the team is more interested in its ability to hug walls. This could be a huge advantage in infrastructure inspection jobs.

It’s hard to control this flying mode manually and flight control software is constantly adjusting the power input to your props. Watch it in action in the video below.
