Is is possible to design a UAV that uses its entire body as a rotor during take-off ?
In this UAV vertical take-off does not require an external rotor or a thrust/weight ratio greater than one. When this UAV reaches a safe altitude, it transitions to horizontal flight.When this UAV reaches a safe altitude, it transitions to horizontal flight.
Landing is the same sequence in reverse. The retractable landing gear ends in a simple rubber ball. When the engines are stopped, a dolly
supports the aircraft on the ground.
I would sincerely appreciate any feedback that I get about this concept .
