Incredible!

p.s. I really enjoyed your Phil Kraft Kwik Fli-3 thread in classic pattern too. You are quite diverse in your radio control interests.

Awesomely creative!
I'm curious, Otto, are you using an additional prop for horizontal flight? The reason I ask is I'm attempting to do that. I'm hoping to build a quad for launching planes.

No. I have two counter rotating motors to eliminate torque. All flight control comes from the legs in hover and horizontal flight.

One more question if I may: Is it the prop wash that provides the legs with air flow for control?
