View Full Version : Colibri fly by

06 June 2010, 10:19 AM
( another render from my Colibri VTOL project.The design of the main body is inspired by the "singercar" artwork of Syd Mead-The first artwork I saw of him as a child...long ago.
I just added some changes in shape and size to make it more "realistic"-without loosing the "future" main theme.

Like the shape and the lighting. Maybe a early morning or twilight shrouded coast line in BG might be nice.

OK,thank you for this!I dont get it...weekend comes and my mind makes holiday!
But it is an interesting suggestion...lets see!

Nice concept. A suggestion though would be to increase the wingspan on the nose. Because currently it would end up in a nose dive due to the position of the propellers.

Thank you Kakkoii for your comment!
It is hard to see-I know, but the wings have a negative V shape and the rotoring systems are nearly at the middle of the Colibri.The heaviest part,the engine, is in the back of this flyer so the weight of it is balanced on the wings and rotors.The front wings are only steering elements.
The ring on the end of the flyer is a stabilisator for the flight of it ( including the antenna and the advanced GPS system).
Meanwhile I am happy that this construction has inspired others for their projects here!:)
