    RE: Post 85

    Just to post some of the information, since Barnstormers links usually die after a while:

    "The new RP-4 aircraft shown here, is being built to attack the World 3, 15 and 100 Kilometer Speed Records."

    "
    Two high performance V-8 engines power the RP-4"

    "
    tilizing NASA Unducted Fan Technology, two four-blade propellers with variable pitch hubs were constructed. The blades consist of 84 layers of prepreg carbon fiber and are 58 inches in diameter"

    That information was "new" in 2007. Anyone have anything more recent on this aircraft? Did it ever even fly? I'm pretty sure it never participated in Reno.

    They finally figured out that you don't need to rotor blades to spin if you make the helicopter ugly enough, the earth just repels it. :gig:

    The Bateleur seemed interesting at the time, who knows, with some redesign it could be an interesting aircraft...

    Yeah, reminds me to mention the original upon which Burt Rutan build the VariViggen/EZ and the Japanese built the Kyushu Shinden. The Ambrosini SS4:

    Oh, and someone said that it also inspired George Lucas for the space fighters look in the first Star Wars movie... :)
