Do you have one flying yet or is it still in the works?

Thanks,

This plane is not finished. It's for the next season. Now, I'm flying with the version 1 of the AntiGraviton and I'm satisfied of his characteristics. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_9749764/tm.htm With the version 2, I hope to make a better design and to solve some minor problems.

The projet is at this level:

Maybe throw in a contra-drive?

Thanks for your positive remarks!

Volkert, I do not have any experience with contra-rotative propellers. But, it's clear that the principle of contra systems fit with the principle of symmetry used for the conception of this plane. I will start with a simple AXI motor. According to my experience with the previous version, the rotation of the propeller do not induces many undesirable effects on the flight, even if the motor is mounted without any down or lateral angle. This is probably due to the symmetry of the fuselage and also to the knife edge wings which guide the airflux.

One other advantage of this plane is that I do not have to use any complex mixing to obtain neutral flight characteristics.

Hi geoffroy, very unusual looking plane but the concept is really interesting. You should mount another undercarriage with wheels on top to complete the symmetry . You could then land inverted!! Nice job though.
