Very cool. Now let's see how it handles the transitions to/from forward flight.

no more hand launching for this guy! That's the worst part of flying X8 :)

So fantastic!

It's only a demonstration of a tricopter skinned as an X8 - transition not possible.  Cheap parlor trick.

Nice! Actually after watching it a few times I can see all the necessary linkages required for a forward flight transition. I look forward to seeing that video!

I have got 3 of the x-8's. Time to experiment! How about details and dimensions please.

If you hover (or fly) to enough altitude, transition is always possible, Harry.

Ha, I like a good parlor trick.
