Dual-axis tilting propellers quadcopter allows three actuations, gyroscopic torques, vectoring, and differential thrusting. Unlike the standard quadcopter, the dual-axis titling quadcopter provides a wide range of control torques by combining the three actuations. Standard quadcopters cannot fly between adjacent obstacles if one of the rotors fails. This paper proposes a bespoke concept to enhance the performance characteristics of the standard quadcopter. The proposed dual-axis tilting quadcopter has better agility and disturbance rejection ability, and performs autonomous flight between adjacent obstacles. It is also capable of flying in the event of the failure of one or two rotors. The dual-axis tilting propellers quadcopter fills the knowledge gap in the main body of the multi-rotors unmanned aerial systems research. View this paper.
