Well, in the first few seconds I thought he was a crumb or two off a fruit cake but he's making long abandoned ideas actually fly, as Peter said, it works!

Thanks Peter.

Being a bit cynical it is really more a tribute to the wonders of modern electronics, LiPo batteries and brushless motors than a practical aerodynamic solution nevertheless it certainly works.

"A lot of unconventional shapes and surfaces will fly not only surprisingly well"

e.g. lifting body type craft, the 117, or the facetmobile... all look unworkable at first glance. And then off they go.

Has anyone followed the original link and found the two aircraft that fly tethered together (about 25 feet apart) and flown from a single transmitter. They fly in two modes, in parallel (along side each other) and around each other (yes in a 25 diameter circle.

Look for the link to "Twofer", an amazing mix of aerodynamics and technology.

The way this looks in flight reminds me of the RAF's irreverent nickname for the aircrew observer brevet:

Thanks Peter, those videos in the link are brilliant. Always been interested in the unusual stuff so my thinking cap is back on.

Yes, it's quite amazing the things that can be made to fly. I have been flying a couple of hydros for years and they never cease to entertain me. They do not so much fly as surf on the air and are kept aloft by a touch of up elevator and their air speed.

Some of you will be aware of the Inter-Ex meets in Europe where like minded tinkerers meet up to exchange ideas and show off their latest inventions - great stuff.
