Hi Joe

There is this one...the PAL-V. I am thinking about doing one of these myself.

I have emailed the company and explained that I'd like to model this, to try and get some more details and drawings but to no avail yet.

Folding props are no problem for me....but they are never any good again afterwards!!

Cheers
Rich

I find company's reluctant to help modelers with extra details other than what they publish I think in case of liability
If i find anything I will let you know
One flight folding propsknow what you mean

Interesting Joe,

I like the Carter Copter and the one above it looks like it would be ideal for a model as it proportions are about right, what is that one?

Rich,
PAL-V looks a challenge, the only problem I see is that narrow under carriage track. We do want to see the car version aswell, now there is a challenge!



Regards

Rich

Here's the promotional video for the PAL-V, in case someone missed it:

Looks to be a great concept, but somewhat complex to reproduce in a small scale version.
