Triebflugal

I was wondering if anyone has ever made a RL RC Triebflugal, of a model of one for real flight. If not, how would you go about doing it?

Triebflugal was a secret Nazi prototype for a VTOL interceptor, took off verticaly with the spinning blades being powerd by ramjets on the tips

I wonder if it had ANY chance of flying at all!

The torque and precession generated by the flying ramjets would have torn it apart instantly.

The tail is simply to small to hold it in flight let alone during takeoff.

Check out the Pogo. By comparison it had a week set of turbines, and COUNTER rotating blades offsetting one another.

In spite of this it had to have huge tail surfaces to achieve stability.
