RC Quad-Motor Tilt Rotor Transport

Apr 02, 2013 12 Comments by

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, something new comes along and you sit back and just say wow! So it the case for this amazing homebuilt RC transport airplane that has tilt wing mounted motors–four of them! And, not only does this cool backyard bomber fly extremely well, it is also aerobatic in that it flies pretty good inverted as well.

Check out this awesome A-Team inspired video posted by FoamandTape. We love it! It is complete with Airsoft guns, night rescue missions, RC tanks and yes, bottle rockets and sparklers! Video shot by Peter Sripol, Stephen Sripol and Sam Foskuhl. Stunt pilot and director Peter Sirpol. Excellent work guys!

    Although this aircraft is of great interest because of its capabilities, it bothers me what I see on the video. Flying over homes, over people, from a moving car, firing rockets… all the things we are trying to stay away from in order for the UAV monster not to destroy our hobby.

    I think that the magazine should exhibit a little more restrain in including material that could be detrimental to the hobby… on the other side “fire” increases circulation.

    I was disappointed!
