[PR] Flight Test of Next-Generation Unmanned Logistics Aircraft | KamomeAirプロジェクト - 香川県高松市の無人航空機 | UAS | ドローン(Drone)による、物資輸送・無人物流プロジェクト
Interesting, but it doesn't look like the VTOL props feather, and I would have put the downward facing props aft and the normal props in front plus tilt the engine mounts. But from a device risk standpoint, eliminating a tilt failure mode does make sense, and if no tilt, then having the props reverse mounted may improve airflow over the wing.

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.

Technically not a quadplane due to missing wings. Very high speed FPV rig with rear propulsor so no forward tilt.

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...

Interesting quad, single motor with collective pitch controls for very high performance. Once you get beyond a certain prop diameter, cyclic control is required.

Research project: VertiKUL
VertiKUL version one was like the Google early cargo drone, a BWB with high/low set rotors on tails as a tail sitter, but the wide wingspan when landing meant wind tossed it around. Version 2 now uses a permanent 45 degree tilt to the rotors, which provide partial lift in forward flight like some FPV racers.

OFM Hyper 330 Ultimate FPV Racing Quadcopter | Only Flying Machines
Interesting tilt mechanism to keep the body level during accelerated forward flight. Is the added weight worth the effort? Might be for keeping the FPV video camera stable and staying aerodynamic, compared to a tilt stance regular quad with compensating video camera gimbal.

Zippy, but surprised it isn't a tail sitter. Though if it really carried hard drives, then it really would be a packet copter of sorts. Maybe an update to RFC1149?
