I hate you H.

Not because of these but because of the hour I lost watching the KrAz truck, earthmoving disasters and parking revenge videos that appeared on the "you may like" list.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Nick Moran (The Chieftain) has done a walkaround on one of the Twister prototypes at Fort Benning.

VERY interesting, especially since he goes into the problems encountered in some detail.

I'm another one whose schedule has been disrupted by the "you may like" problem.  It means I'll have to put off some procrastinating I had planned; at least until tomorrow.


Seriously, thanks for the link.

Jeepers, I'd have hated to have to instrument that thing for Road Load Data! :(

But some poor sap probably did so!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Oh yeah, that's a lot of peoples' first thought these days. This concept would be SO much easier with a motor in every wheel hub and a couple of diesel (or even gas-turbine) generators, one in each body.
