Product Idea

Futurecraft 02

 

My first Vertical Take Off Landing craft. The Futurecraft 01.

The build consist of 182 bricks (including 2 minifigs). A fairly easy build featuring the following design modifications:

1) It had no wings, and all lift and thrust were provided by a rotor/propeller assembly 1/2 of the way down the side of the craft. When the plane was sitting on its tail in the vertical position, the rotors would have functioned similarly to a helicopter. When flying horizontally, they would function more like a giant propeller. The tiltable four rotor blades were mounted on a ring assembly supported by bearings, allowing free rotation around the fuselage. At the end of each was a ramjet.

2) Four small castoring wheels on extensible struts were placed at the end of each tailplane to steady the aircraft on the ground and allow it to be moved. There is also a mounted rocket propulsion system at the rear to aid with horizontal flight.

3) The cockpit chair can adjust to both vertical take off and horizontal flight.

This is my 31st build, and hopefully more to come. As with my previous sets this build is fully playable. If you like this model please do share and support this build through your friends and your social network.

Your opinions, suggestions and comments are most welcome.

Thank You and Happy Building :)
