OK .. tks first for not saying I'm a nutter !!

Why am I asking ...

I have recemtly started flying quad .. little Banggod jobbie. I also fly Fixed wing as most know.

I appreciate the little 959 will not lift a reasonable fixed wing model - but there are quads out there which will.

So how to combine them ? Which is why I posted .. a rod based quad with a fixed wing job built round it. If it's a flat plate depron job .. surely that will work ..

Lets say you build an F16 / F15 style flat plate job with enlarged tail stabs - so the rotors can fit in the area of stabs .. as well as the forward two into the main wings...
ie basically 2 main wings connected by fuselage .. with quad sitting in it ..

Strap a pusher prop on the back or a tractor prop on front .. bingo !

The quad is configurable on most radios such a 9xr and higher Spek's to be controlled by pots or switched in / out .. etc.

C'mon .. bit of imagination - what can we do ?


Yes - I'm stuck in Ukraine and minds thinking !!
