1) Insurance company doesn't understand it, so they don't cover it, so EAA can't do it... Sounds feasible.I have been to Air Venture twice (2018 and 2019) to see a manned evtol fly.
It didn't happen either year. Why not?
No one will answer.
I think that was the lay on top cranked flying wing. Nice project.No, a composite and fabric design from Japan. Should be something at their website, I forgot the name.
Myself, I would not want to go anywhere near a QUADcopter!.Because there are not any operational maned quadcopters to display.
That was two-stroke engines, probably Rotax, not electric. (green CGS Hawk built by Ivo)I've seen video of a CGS Hawk with the engine removed, and multiple electric motors/props mounted on leading & trailing edge of the wing. Hovered, but no transition to forward flight.
It's called "project OpenSky M-02J" and is inspired by a flying machine from the animation movie "Nausicaa of the valley of the wind" by Hayao Miyazaki.No, a composite and fabric design from Japan. Should be something at their website, I forgot the name.
The Forbes article link is more interesting. 100 aircraft and no public showing, and now they are giving up on the Flyer. Raptor is still on version one.
