Well, since the thread says "aircraft' not 'airplanes', why not a scale-like (non-coax!) version of the H-21 Shawnee, aka "The Flying Banana":

Or its larger, less ugly counterpart, the CH-47 Chinook:



If they did that they could actually say that they beat Walkera to the punch on something!

Yep, specified "aircraft" on purpose, just because this tech can encompass a wide range of vehicles.

That Piasecki...lol...so ugly it's cute. The prototype had an elegant airship-like cockpit...

And even the operational versions used a single radial engine, mounted aft to drive everything!

Talk about ahem 'made of brass'... wow.

A Cirrus Vision SF50 would be cool. Last year, I watched the first public flight at the Duluth airshow. It is uncannily quiet. An EDF version would even sound scale. Gotta have the flaps & UM retracts.

Luv'd the scale GeeBee landing...and I'm not even a GeeBee fan.

The fact is that with the state of the art right now, the system needs to be tuned to specific airframes... kinda slows things down a bit...

An OV-10? It would seem to be a natural twin for this size.

BIG thumbs up for the Bugatti Racer. One of the most elegant designs of all time. Look at how short coupled it is. It definitely needs stabilization.
