Thanks - Kevin

Is this the first time someone put collective on an airplane prop? I was talking to somebody about this years ago as the next big thing and completely forgot about it.

Nah, it's far from new... Though I can only imagine how much the systems and even the airframes have improved since then.

It's not collective pitch, it's a MAMO Upside down unit with a motor mount that vectors for yaw. However, Foam and Tape who posts in the foamy scratch build forum has done some work with collective on his 4 motor VTO projects.
