A system for controlling inbound transition of an aircraft includes a fuselage and first and second freewings pivotably mounted on opposing sides thereof. The system includes an airspeed sensor that outputs an airspeed indication signal. The system includes a controller for increasing aircraft engine thrust to substantially maximum for inbound transition, and for generating pitch and freewing control signals. The system includes actuators for actuating aircraft control surfaces in response to the pitch control signal to rapidly increase pitch of the fuse...
What is claimed is: 1. A system for controlling inbound transition of a tail-sitting vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, comprising: a fuselage; a first freewing and a second freewing pivotably mounted on opposing sides of the fuselage; an airspeed sensor, wherein the airspeed sensor determines an airspeed of the aircraft and outputs an airspeed indication signal; a controller in communication with the airspeed sensor, wherein the controller receives the airspeed indication signal, wherein the controller increases thrust of an engine of the ai...
