Notes: This rare airplane (if we can call it plane) only reaches 50-60 m/s so it have limited flight. I have added 4 more engines because with 2 rotors i was unable to take off xD

Both the V-173 and the XF5U featured an unorthodox all-wing design consisting of flat, somewhat disk-shaped bodies (hence the name) serving as the lifting surface. Two piston engines buried in the body drove propellers located on the leading edge at the wingtips.
