Milton January 18, 2017 08:31 PM This thing started as a 2-prop (2-duct) "hoverbike" on Kickstarter. After people started asking how the 2-prop design would work, it became a quad, and then people started asking why the overlap. I still haven't heard a good reason for the overlap. Please enlighten us. My guess is that this is just going to end up being a true large-scale quad. In which case the overlap design may have been a big waste of time and money. MattII January 19, 2017 01:28 AM @Milton, I don't know the diameter of the rotors, but I'd say at least 40-50cm, which would be good for stability, but not so much for storage. u.r.a.bunchofdoofuses January 19, 2017 06:14 AM no doubt the same people sucking taxpayers dry to pay for this are already helping our fabricated enemies be able to shoot the things down with something that costs a whole lot less.

I guess they could put some bullet proof armor on it and soldiers could shoot down at targets from above. FabianLamaestra January 19, 2017 02:44 PM The video only shows a quad flying without a person or payload. Snooze. Charles S Roscoe January 19, 2017 03:42 PM What was the white box that was dropped 3/4 the way thru the video at the 1:57 mark? The white box shows at the beginning but not after it landed. No armor makes this a target unless it has Zig-Zag evasive maneuvers programmed in its flight path to throw off good aim.
