Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Those cyclogiro-rotors look very practical for small spaces the way they are enclosed on all sides.

so rather than a flying blender like a quad, its a flying qualcast lawn mower ;)

in all seriousness, I like it, wonder if we could develop a model of that engine driven by a brushless motor, ... hmm .... new quad idea !!

Many Thanks

Well it doesn';t look totally dissimilar to the fanwing aircraft, of which there are already several RC examples flying;

I wonder if you had 4 fans - one in each corner - could you then use quadcopter style thrust vectoring to increase stability at slow speeds?

This is edf using vector thrust - amazing; it';s been on my must have list for a while,  with my skill level it will probably stay on the list for ever!

The thrust to weight ratio on that is amazing for an EDF!
