Thanks for the compliments, they are about 3 years that I'm working at VTOL. I followed various paths and configurations. This is the most simple and effective. Model f35 hobby king, hobby swang 68 mm fan rotating in 3 positions (horizontal, vertical and 45 degrees), 4-cell lipo 2250 Ryno, 8 servos, gws around 3, with batteries weight model 1050 grams, 1300 grams static thrust fan, radio tunirgy 9 channels, power consumption in hovering 55 amps, for a complete flight autonomy of translations, about 2.5 minutes. Moreno.

Great info and blooper reel. Thanks for sharing. Very respectable flight time. Your hard work has paid off.

You have a nice VTOL air force going on there.

Really like that harrier you're building. Really cool to see the landing gear go up as it's hovering.

55mm fans units you say? I thought they might be at least 60mm.

What battery do you use for the Harrier. I'm guessing four 55mm fans at 50 amps each pull about 200 amps total

Have you had a chance to fly the harrier in forward flight conventionally yet? I would have thought the harrier would be easier to build than the F35 but you got the F35 flying really good first.

Keep up the good work!!!

I must point out: the f35 flying with a 68 mm. and takes 55 amps. the Harrier flies with 4 fans 55 and absorbs 26 amps each. flies with 2 packs of 4-cell 2250. the harrier weighs 1650 grams. The Harrier has not yet made the shift from vertical flight to horizontal flight. the conditions are good. I wonder if they are the first in the world to perform vertical takeoff, vertical landing straight flight model with a fan.

Sounds good.

Good luck with the transition attempt. When it makes it, it'll be the first electric one I know of. I have seen some come very close but not quite as smooth as what is being done with the Wii boards now.

But don't take to long. At 100$ they are practically giving that Harrier away on the HobbyKing site and I've always wanted to try flying a jet. Hmmm, where did I put that credit card...

Hello Moreno, in my opinion, you are the first in the world to have completed the vertical takeoff, horizontal flight and vertical landing. This is the beginning of a new era, because most accomunerà aircraft lovers and those helicopters. Hello Massimo. P.S I think you will pass the story .....

Very cool harrier .. and yes I think you are the first with electric fan ... full scale bird to do VTOL ... some have done test bed birds ... but to do the full scale is the trick .

Keep them going .. and good luck with your work ,, keep us all posted
