Stock Rotary Wing Prototype Aircraft (Wing Folding Concept Plane)

Recommended Posts

Yea, long title but pretty explanatory. This is a concept folding wing airplane based off of WWII US fighter planes, the Corsair and the Hellcat and this plane is able to fold it's wings vertically so it is able to be stored compact. This is a prototype and concept so the design of the hinge and it's efficiency deploying and folding them individually is sub-par. Also the visual appeal of the hinges are horrible so if anyone can design a hinge and a plane better than this please feel free to show.

Cool design. However, it has been already developed before by multiple people, including myself. I think that the future lies in making the design compact enough to be used practically.
