    Vertigo vertical takeoff Ducted Fan r/c airplane

    Anyone built/flown a "Vertigo"? I have the plans and was wondering what success anyone had with this plane.

    Vertigo flights

    One of the guys here in my local club has built and flown one successfully. He has not done the vertical take off and landing but he has successfully went from forward flight to hover and back again. The plane flies beautifully and transitions almost effortlessly. His name is Jaffrey Stevenson and I am not sure if he is on RCU or not.

    Perfect landing or total destruction crash, I still love this hobby!

    Vertigo vertical takeoff Ducted Fan r/c airplane

    Does the Vertigo have cargo carrying capability? What problems might occur hauling a load?
    Is there any other VTOL design model that does a better transition?
    Can a fuel powered engine work in 1 of these designs?

    Vertigo vertical takeoff Ducted Fan r/c airplane

    One thing about the vertigo, You'll need to look into newer gear for it, such as gyros and electric motors (for the tilting). I wrote MAN a few years back, they mentioned the .020 (?) geared electric motor used for tilting the fan was no longer made. And of course, gyros have grown by leaps and bounds.

    If there's one thing I've been trying to get plans for it's a VTOL,
    can I have a copy of the designs ?

    There are plans for building the Vertigo, a single ducted fan located near or on the CG of the fuselage, design. The plans are $30 US. I don't have the web address. Do a Yahoo search on Vertigo or Vertigo,VTOL.

    VERTIGO INFO

    VERTIGO V-TOL AIRCRAFT This model was the most interesting and challenging I have done in 20 years of rc modelling and would only advise it to advanced builders and heli experienced or pilots able to hover a plane. Although I fly planes and heli's, the vertigo fly's well but requires nerves of steel to hover when not under vertical accellerated lift or if it is not set up correctly. VERTIGO builders and pilots with knowledge to exchange contact kronk@qldnet.com.au

    Here you go.

    Here's a picture and link below to the website for plans. Scroll about 3/4 down the page once it's loaded and look for the VTOL.

    Here's the link:

    Vertigo vertical takeoff Ducted Fan r/c airplane

    I have had a look at the rcstore web page and it suggests an OS46VRDF. Does the Vertigo use a Turbax fan or a cut down prop ????

    Also where is the tuned pipe ??? Obviously it cannot stick out the back because it would get in the for vertical landing but surely this is not run with a high performance motor and no pipe/muffler ????

    I have a old Viojet or two or three with a KBV 82, perhaps I'll scale one up and stick that in it.

    Prop is 9=5 Zinger, muffler is fragrance or mousse can with adapters, and it works just fine as designed.
