I noticed when the props are tilted forward to go into airplane mode, that they don't tilt down very far and the vehicle accelerates very quickly. Do they ever fly this aircraft with the engines tilted all the way down parallel to the ground? Seems like there would be some major speed involved.

Yes they do. On the way to Jacksonville, NC (Cherry Point Marine Airbase) two Osprey's were flying right over my car and you could clearly see that the Engines were parallel to the ground.

They cannot land or rollout with the blades at 90 dgrees since the blades are longer than the engine height... ouch!

Taxiing is done at 45 degrees or much less.

Since these are testflights, they may not have begun transition to full rotation.

The fullsized test flights progressed very slowly before they began to transition... very cautious, and still there were many mishaps.

He is insane to stand so close to that thing. Imagine if one of the blades came off...

Comment by Morli on June 18, 2010 at 12:46am
that too two of 3 blade rotors ( or 4 blade flybar less i think)!!! powered with turbine eng :( , definitely insane and daring
