Most types of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV, drone) missions requiring Vertical-Take-Off-and-Landing (VTOL) capability could benefit if a drone’s effective range could be extended. Example missions include Search-And-Rescue (SAR) operations, a remote inspection of distant objects, or parcel delivery. There are numerous research works on multi-rotor drones (e.g., quadcopters), fixed-wing drones, VTOL quadplanes, or tilt-motor/tilt-wing VTOLs. We propose a unique compact VTOL UAV optimized for long hover and long-range missions with great lifting capacity and manoeuvrability: a tandem-wing quadplane with fixed motors only. To the best of our knowledge, such a drone has not yet been researched. The drone was designed, built, and tested in flight. Construction details, its advantages, and issues are discussed in this research.
