I seem to remember they had a pre-war version with interlocking rotors (2 rotors) done side by side</>. The weird thing about it was that they were demonstrating it indoors. Remember it was flown by a woman at that demo. Possibly a future project for ya...
Cool! these were tied to the back of sub's as they moved along and turning rotors and the small motor kept it from wondering off! If it had to pulled down quickly it was winched in. Not sure if it worked well against aircraft spotting. I'm sure the time would have not of been long enough to winch, pack and dive before attack! Great 3-way. Rarely seen. Rob.
