Ah, but a true project nonetheless. Rehan can support this claim as the aircraft's creator. I'm merely the assistant designer.

Hi Stingray, the Rehan Janjua - Stingray AP-ZAZ / "Rehan 2011" / "Mini-Cobra" / "GyroCobra"

https://sites.google.com/site/stingrayslistofrotorcraft/rehan-janjua-ap-zaz

This is wonderful to see that you are collaborating with this project. When will it be finished?

Good job, now it's your turn.

The project is currently in the rough design stage, but, according to Rehan, the prototype should be under construction by this Summer.

A little advice; go for one of Edoardo's proposals. You're design looks great but the tail boom is way too long.

Hi Stingray, thank you. My challenge is attached below. And this is good to know. Me and I'm sure the rest of us would very much like to see it take flight so please update when you can. smile

 Next time you suggest a challenge, make sure to rename the picture before uploading it... The file's name was a dead giveaway!!! biggrin

Hi Stargazer2006, I forgot that you can view filenames and especially when saving the file to your own computer. I will rename them next time. Sorry for this.

You're both right but Leela wins for guessing the correct designation.

Looks like an ASW version of the S-76.

Here is my next challenge. It should be more difficult. I would have posted a Convair proposal as an upgrade to the Model 49 but my files are missing.

Hello Kabomber, I hope your file issue has been resolved. Can you please share with us this upgrade to the Model 49? I have never heard of any upgrade to this project before. Thanks.

There isn't. It was too dangerous of a design to further develop for it's intended military applications.

Cardoen Long Ranger attack helicopter mockup. It would add more challenge if you edit out the obvious pointers in the photos... the big bold "CARDOEN" in the background gives it away horribly.

 Triple Nickel,

In the Army we called this one an OH 6 Cayuse..........not sure if I spelled it right. Or the "flying Egg" I think a Howard Hughes design, but not sure.............anyone got further details?

Dave, you're right, the Army's H-6 observation model is designated OH-6, but the armed version is designated AH-6 "Little Bird", plus the later modified version known as the MD-500 "Defender". The Navy's designation for helicopters usually goes by SH- or TH-, but I'm not too familiar with the H-6 series, so I might have gotten a few wrong.

Try wiki for better info.

 The photo attached to the above post is actually the YEH-60B SOTAS (Stand Off Target Aquisition System) bird.   Here's the real deal before she got the SLAR boom.  Notice the long legs on the landing gear.

Here she is in flight with the SLAR boom:

Well, if Leela got the last challenge wrong, should we give the win to Rotorwash? His answer does check out much more than hers.
