Direct Touch Operation Method for Flying Cargo System based on Multi Rotor Helicopter

Masafumi Miwa


We present the flying cargo system based on multi-copter. This system is designed for transporting at irregular ground. Two types of specialized “Direct Touch Operation” method for flying cargo system were tested. The first flight mode is “Direct push operation”, and second flight mode is “Touch / Auto Operation”. We report the results of both flight modes. These are intuitive operation method by which any one can operate flying cargo system. Flying cargo can do transportation in horizontal and vertical directions without topographically effect.
