Not exactly RC

Neat. Didn't the US Army play with that concept back in the 50's? Contra-rotating blades and attached to teh back of the trooper? p.s. I seem to recall seeing one at WPAFB and another at the air & space museum in 76' -- Keith

Agreed IF you have the skill with a machine shop... A skill that I lack, sadly. 8^) I've similar one in mind I'd love to do. Always wanted to do a large scale Kaman Husky with turbine power. It's daunting enough I wont do anything but dream. -- Keith

You could maybe do a close stand-off scale with one of the twin-rotor almost-toy ARF mini helicopters that are showing up these days. The rotor separation would be way too big, and there would be that big not-to- scale flybar, but it'd be _close_

I know...IF I did it it would be correct. The details might lack but I'd like it so you could stand back hold up an old aircraft ID flashcard up and it would be RIGHT...as in the silouettes would overlap perfectly. I'll leave stuff like perfectly scale interiors and rivet spacing to the obssesive compulsives. 8^) I still remember watching them fly on a regular basis at McConnel AFB. -- Keith

You can get rid of the flybar with careful application of additional mems gyros to pitch and roll. Lots and lots and lots of discussion on rcgroups.com

A nice turbine powered version. 8^) But not likely to happen...I am not skilled enough. -- Keith
