Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) attract attention as applications such as information gathering and goods transportation in the event of a disaster. A UAV with tiltable rotors have been developed especially for achieving both vertical takeoff and landing and high speed flight. In this research, it aims to develop a quadrotor equipped with four tilt-rotors and a fixed-wing. In this paper, we first describe the overview of the airframe dealt with in this research. Next, we explain the transition flight to move from a hovering to a level flight. After that, a PD controller for the transition flight is designed, it is verified by simulations that the airframe can perform a transition flight.
