VTOL rotorcraft has traditionally been constrained by the aerodynamic limitations of supersonic flow at the blade tips and retreating blade stall. Using a combination of rotor blade speed reduction and individual blade control can minimise or even eliminate these restrictions.

The aim of this project is to create a Virtual Swashplate for an unmanned or optionally piloted VTOL air vehicle which can be used to deliver cargo, fuel or food  over difficult terrain and in hazardous environments.
