how did you make it and can I get a model?

I built it out of PVC & Styrene.
it wasn't a finished model, so I didn't considered making duplicates. maybe if I get around to building an updated version. :)

i like it, feels like the future of Helicopter technologies. (assuming anti grav is the new rotary wing)

thanks :) this one's still a little conventional though. it still pushes air downward to achieve lift :)

i see that now, when i made the comment, i wasnt paying full attention, from teh looks of it, it could work in RL, but would have a very very low maximum lift (so only lightly armed)

that's an accurate assessment based the tech currently available to us. though with sufficiently advanced tech, it wouldn't have any of those limitations. after all, the tech I had in mind with this design involves AI, mechs & energy weapons. :)

from what knowledge i have, mechs will not be used except for construction work, and Energy weapons are to expensive and inefficient in comparison to ballistics. Energy weapons have there places in modern arsenals, but ballistics are just better.

I'd like to think that mechs can be integrated for combat use, but as support units. indeed, nothing beats hurling metal at supersonic & hypersonic speeds. :)

The landing gear should be wheels that way moving it will be easier to move and maintain

if we take into consideration the technology & logistic support involved, it wouldn't be any more difficult to move compared to a UH-1 or any similar helicopter on skids.

True but you see those with wheel kit add ons
