This post got me to wondering about just the opposite!
http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t218430p1/
Has anyone ever built a full scale that looks like a 3D pod and boom?
I have seen some home builds and some cool customs.
But it would be awesome if someone built a full scale Raptor or Fury!
I am betting it could be done if you had the $ and the desire..

Would that mean that every Raptor out there could now be entered in scale competition???

Heck have you seen what some of the stars buy for their damn kids on that VH1 show!! There are 12 year olds out there that could afford to do it! What the heck! Just make it to where you can change canopies over the cockpit and have an all in one!
Just imagine the money you could make with it from showing up at fun flys!haha And just change the canopy to whatever CO. wanted to pay you the most to rep there model in full size @ the shows..Hehehe

I dunno if I'd want a full scale raptor. Might be a bit distracting getting bonked over the head with the collective arm every time you do a climbout

Not to mention that the woof and poof would be REALLY nasty if you were sitting inside it...

Sounds like a fun project. People often wonder how 3D capable full size are and as we know, they don't hold a candle to what our models do. I like the look of these posted above and they immediately got me to thinking about what would be required to make a fully 3D capable full size. There are definately possibilities if you consider the power to weight ratio. Something like this could be built extremely lightly and with the properly applied materials science, could be strong enough. I would expect a gas turbine would kick out enough power at a minimal weight. The head would be a problem as it would need to be extremely strong and the tail section also would have to endure punishment. Just thinking about doing rippers.
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
