These nose-sitters greatly enrich the world of VTOL (why were there only tail-sitters with too much simple transition to horizontal flight?) ;) :-* :icon_music:

nose sitters, that is an invention indeed, I am lucky that you are making me aware of it ;-)

The Huey looks like a helicopter version of the Stipa-Caproni (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stipa-Caproni)

They blend nicely, though I reckon this would give new meaning to "the wind in the wires".  I wonder if remote actuators could be made to play tunes in flight?

turtles & P-38, Sabre, Saab21 Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #552 on: April 06, 2016, 01:18:54 AM »
some of my previous experiments left me with a number of fuselages (that's what you get when you fit wings to everything). Particularly, some twin booms ...


And then I thought of turtles, bought three of them, and here we go :

P-38, blue :










Saab-21, yellow :











Sabre, red :
