Video: Depron 3D airplane with collective pitch prop
I recorded this video last Saturday night at our local indoor fly-in. This is Ben Batts flying his Lotus Depron 3D foamie with a collective pitch prop. Who says airplanes can't fly backwards?

I've been flying at The Gathering Place in Greenwood, NEVER saw anything like this !!!
Plus the floor looks softer than the gym floor at TGP.
Where do I find info on the Lotus design and equipment ? Please :-)

Excellent plane and piloting skill.
I tested this system on my R/C simulator but my transmitter still have a "springed" throttle stick so... it was very difficult !
What are the AUW, engine, prop and lipo used please ?

i doubt it's collective, more than likely variable pitch coupled with variable thrust. The most common system is the Mamo Upside Down System. There's a lot more info in the F3P forum.
