MIR | MIR is launching a new UAV design to automate rope access work
Interesting, using 2 xis gymbal for each rotor stack so have full 6 DoF all the time (aside from gymbal-lock scenarios). Should allow high agility, and potentially allowing the body to go vertical.

DELFTACOPTER – Delta-wing Electric Longrange Transitioning Autonomous Helicopter
Interesting collective pitch control single rotor tailsitter drone. Ah, but it has "tailrotor" like tip props, so technically a tricopter?

Quantum TRON - Transition Drones
Odd tiltrotor, appears to trailing feather the rear propellers in forward flight, but the rotors look like they are designed to feather over the motor housings (implied by the glider mode), but that would mean the rear props need to feather forwards...

Not clear if this is a ducted coax prop or a single with antitorque fins

Meet Adeline, Airbus’ Answer To SpaceX Reusability -
Er, so like Vulcan, but as a flying turboprop pod. Nice try, SpaceX Falcon 9 will still beat this.

Seems like a tiltrotor version of NASA's GL-10 electric distributed propulsion UAV prototype. The feathering prop trick is interesting, as it effectively creates a dual mode propulsion system, but the nature of beast means you have small disc rotor area with high disc loading in VTOL.
