The main advantage of tail-sitter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) are introduced. Three design solutions of rotor tail-sitter lift system of UAV have been presented and the respective control strategies and characteristics of three solutions are also analyzed in the paper, through the related experiments the design of twin-rotor lift system is verified, and its feasibility is proved. The characteristics and the applying background of the twin-rotor tail-sitter UAV are described in detail. Some useful conclusions of the lift system for tail-sitter UAV are obtained.
