Flexibility and endurance are the continuous pursuits of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) research. A fixed-wing UAV with vertical takeoff and landing ability is ideal because it combines the advantages of long flight durations and freedom from runways. Therefore, tilt-wing and tilt-rotor UAVs have been developed. The former is more suitable for long-duration flight because the propeller slip-stream is less disturbed, and a longer wingspan can be designed.
