Credits

I’d like to credit JimmyR for the rotor bearing which I borrowed from his Ka-32 MkII.

I replaced the solar panels by structural panels so that it can handle more stress. Don’t put too much negative gees however or the rotor will break.

Heliclaw

This craft is equipped with the Heliclaw, that’s the grabbing device between the 2 hulls. Action group for decoupling it is on 0.

Tips

The craft comes equipped with 6000 fuel. You can adjust the quantity according to your needs. You can full the tanks up to 25000 fuel and it will lift on wet mode. Once you have enough speed, you can switch back to dry mode.
When carrying payload, be smooth on the controls to keep the Heliclaw from breaking. It’s better to fly higher and slower to reduce drag.
