Virtuoso of Thrust: Dual EDF Thrust Vectoring VTOL System


The sickest flying machine I've ever built!

First minute pics then dance of the vectoring nozzles

Interesting,based in duct deflection looks like15 degrees is the max tilt angle it will correct before lateral acceleration will be necessary to recover.

Yes sir... I was able to take the single fan unit to high speed flights and maneuvers, with over 50 degrees attack angle... This twin unit will increase the flight time and will have similar capabilities...

Amazing flight maiden video of this one of a kind flying machine.

I tested the stabilization, maneuver capabilities and flight time.

I am very pleased: 7 minutes flight time, amazing sound and very balanced…

Pretty cool!

I'm picturing this strapped to the back of a GI Joe doll.

Impressive...is all the control from vector thrust? EDFs sound as if same thrust?...H

Thank you CaribbeanBlue. Yes, control is 100% from thrust vectoring.

Some pics and second flight... Switched the front 90 deg, reduced weight slightly...

This machine has a sound out of a science fiction movie... Love it!

Forgot to set the timer before flight, so cut the flight short... Normally gets close to 7 minutes...

You certainly have this vectored thrust EDF style of tail sitter down pat. It's hard to say whether all the "surfaces" and stuff you hang on them are having any beneficial effect in terms of aerodynamics and flight performance or whether they are just decoration. Regardless, congratulations on another nice flying machine.

Thank you sir. Let me explain the uses of the surfaces on this one:

The little wings on the vectoring nozzles are installed to use the advantage of passing air for navigation. At higher speeds, the negative affect resulting from asymmetries and aerodynamic imperfections is exaggerated. So, I am using the little wings to increase the effectiveness of the vectoring nozzles. They are also used in my split thrust vectoring modules.

The main wings are also very useful. In vertical flight they are pretty much spectator, they are even undesirable, making it more vulnerable against the wind. However when you start the lateral flight they make up for it. The increase in throttle rate to make up for the loss of attitude (resulting from increasing lateral speed) with and without the main wings are significant. If you could fly one, you would definitely feel the difference. The second big use of the main wings is eliminating the risk of stall, specially in lower speed tight turns, where you use the rudder and the ailerons together. Without the wings, there is a significant risk of stalling from misjudgement.

The armor in the front is to hide the cables

Regards...
