I explaining transition in 1 email is not easy, but paparazzi is probably the most flexible open-source autopilot with direct support for a multitude of sensors, boards and airframes.

At this point there are 2 choices concerning transitioned flight:

-manual flight transition: in this setup transition is a 90 degree rotation of the setpoint with coordinated turn dynamics for the turns (roll -> yawrate). You only need gain-sheduling for the attitude loop. []
-fully autonomous transition: this setup also requires gain-sheduled innerloops, but on top of that has several outerloop controllers, each with their own gains and activated by the lift allocation controller. []

Anyone can explain how transition work ?

here are two video of my one year old PLANK VTOL
this is my first attempt.
In my last attempt the motors tilt to do a much better control of stability in hover mode.

Its possible to control this kind of machine with ppz transition ?
