Delftacopter is TU Delft’s Hybrid Tailsitter Drone

Delftacopter is fully autonomous (with an Iridium satellite link for operation anywhere on the planet), and has a range of 60 kilometers with a top speed of 100 kilometers per hour. The autopilot takes care of horizontal flight, vertical landings, and the exceptionally tricky transition between the two.
