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.

Here are some photos taken the weekend of September 5 and 6 in Vicques as part of the Vic'Funfly meeting.
I took part in it with my Nemo 4S model and the Freewing L-39 ALbatros. I thank my friend PAG for the photos.

Hello,
After reading the messages of post : https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...hlight=vtolman
I believe that the models of vtolman are fantastic. The model is very simple and if it is not yet capable of flight with the propellers horizontal position, the result is already remarkable. The videos in flight are amazing.

I decided to get into the construction of my first VTOL using the principles of vtolman. I want to try to reduce the maximum weight. I will use the indoor equipment.

Caracteristic :

Wingspan : 750mm
Weight : ~ 400gr
Motor : 2xApache
ESC : 2x Phoenix 10
Propellers : 9"x4,5"
Servos : Orientation motor 2x HS56 / Elevator 1xHS50
