The first prototype lifted but, has'nt made a flight yet.I now have an 8 ft rotating wing that weighs grams the 1st weighed about a pound and a half.It now weighs about a lb. and a half total with motors capable of 30.000 r.p.m.s The first one was built quike without much forthought and I soon found out I needed a counter rotating prop for one side reversing the motor rotation was easy.But, the rotation is now reversed on the rotating wing allowing me to use stock props on both sides giving me an equal airflow on both sides!! Thanks for the compliment! I don't know why they have'nt thought about building them this way.There safer and won't hurt the enviornment at all if they are made rechargable full scale?
