Neat! But where is the propulsion located? Seems to be all seats and Perspex... :unsure: :o

Ramjets at the tips of the blades: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiller_YH-32_Hornet


Indeed so, but how did they start the ramjets? Something would have to have spun up the rotor before they'd work.

I can find two systems in the variety of different versions: one used a petrol-powered compressor to provide compressed air to spin the blades, the other used a small electric motor.

So not a ground-crewman shouting "CONTACT" and spinning the blades then?   :-\

He'd need to be 9 feet tall, or have a BIG ladder to stand on!  :o
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! :)
