World of Warcraft Flying Machine Replica¨Warning: this machine is not safe, use at your own risk.¨Aaah… Gnomish engineering !

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.

Okay this machine was designed to look good in a video game and not to have good flying qualities so I had to modify the original design a little to make it more controllable, that is a 2nd rotor and a forward engine at the back. Still, this is not the easiest to control.

This flying machine takeoff and land vertically only because there are no wheel. After takeoff, forward engines are activated to gain speed then the rotors are shut down and it becomes an autogyro. To get back in helicopter mode, do the same procedure in reverse. Warning: you cannot land in autorotation so watch your fuel level. In case of an emergency, press abort to deploy the parachute. The machine will break but the kerbal will survive that is if you’re high enough for the parachute to open.
