Abstract

This article presents a review on the platform design, dynamic modeling and control of hybrid Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). For now, miniature UAVs which have experienced a tremendous development are dominated by two main types, i.e., fixed-wing UAV and Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) UAV, each of which, however, has its own inherent limitations on such as flexibility, payload, axnd endurance. Enhanced popularity and interest are recently gained by a newer type of UAVs, named hybrid UAV that integrates the beneficial features of both conventional ones. In this paper, a technical overview of the recent advances of the hybrid UAV is presented. More specifically, the hybrid UAV's platform design together with the associated technical details and features are introduced first. Next, the work on hybrid UAV's flight dynamics modeling is then categorized and explained. As for the flight control system design for the hybrid UAV, several flight control strategies implemented are discussed and compared in terms of theory, linearity and implementation.
