Thanks for the kind words! The main problem flying it is orientation in roll axis as there is no wing to use as reference! It really needs a paint job.

That's cool. Very much your own accomplishment. Kudos.
It does bring back memories of the Kyosho Hyperfly. Used the rotor as a wing, no ability to hover, cyclic control for roll and pitch/speed, needed forward speed for aerodyamic yaw stability.

davecee, yes I remember the Hyperfly from magazine adverts when I was a kid. Must have been interesting to land without throttle control!

Rumcajs, I've seen a few of those tiltrotor VTOLs and they are of course on a whole other level than my configuration!

Hey Fella,

great result, really interesting 'contraption' (meant in the nicest possible way)

Thanks! To my ears 'contraption' sounds like an accolade, I enjoy the odd and quirky!

Got some colours on it, helps with orientation! With daylight getting more scarse by the day this time of year there is little hope of a video before spring though
