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.
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.
