In this article, the design, system modeling and control of a new hybrid type of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is presented. Based on the flight principles of the Dos Samara UAV, a new vehicle that combines the capability of hovering, like a helicopter, and high speed–increased endurance flying, like a fixed–wing aircraft, is designed. The nonlinear dynamics model of the aircraft operating in helicopter mode is derived and linearized around hovering operation. Based on this model an LQ–controller is designed. The performance of the overall system is examined in simulation studies.
