Hiller Flying Platform

Inspired by the VTOL research from the 60's done by Hiller Aircraft Company, I tried to find out what it would take to re-create the kinesthetically-controlled Hiller Flying Platform. Propellers were modeled from scratch and CNC machined, and the contra-rotating coaxial transmission is made from a car differential. This project is currently on hold due to financial restrictions.
