“BTL-8” unique and very simple VTOL, No tilting mechanisms, no auxiliary propulsion, no RCS, no thrust vectoring, and no cyclic. I improved and combined old USA and Soviet VTOL concepts (Vought XF5U and Beriev VVA-14). Capable of “super maneuverability” because control surfaces are inside the propwash.
X-Plane, the flight simulator in use has been used by NASA and Scaled composites in aerodynamics research.
I provided conceptual design and piloting. Original composition “Melancholia” by Adrian Croitor.
