Hello everyone,

After successfully building and then flying my Nemo 4S convertible model, I decided to start studying and building a new model: The XTI Trifan 600.
XTI Aircraft Company, based in Denver Colorado, is developing this revolutionary design aircraft. https://www.xtiaircraft.com/
Based on the images and videos that I could find on the internet, I tried to draw inspiration from the lines of the Trifan 600. I do not claim to obtain the exact shapes. I miss my knowledge in my software as well as the technical documentation. I'm just trying to get as close as I can to it.
After the long hours spent on the CAD software, the first screenshots are here.
There is still a lot of work to do but it is already very motivating. I will now have to start the test bench which will allow me to validate the technological components.

I practise the model aircraft on the ground of Vicques in Switzerland.
I am member of the club of "Aéromodélisme Jurassien Delémont" (http://www.amjd.ch).
Our Track on grass measurement 130m of it length and 30m broad. It is an exceptional place to make fly of the models. Here some photographs of the 20, 21 and 22 April.

The day of opening BaselWorld 2006 in Switzerland, the mark Hamilton (Swatch Group) organized an exceptional show on its stand. Nicolas Ivanoff was present with his Cape 232 of Red Bull Air Race. The Team AMJD associated with Slowflyer for event built counterparts in small-scale models and carried out a race "indoor" on the stand. The goal was to reproduce most accurately Reb Bulll Air Race but in indoor (figures and freestyle).
