  1. Question : why didnt NASA try to stack 2 wing and rotate 1 to the left and 1 to the right?
    This showldnt be had cause the mechanism would be similar to the counter spinning helicopter props+delete the disadvantages.
    WHY ?

  2. Ok after watching i have a question?

    What about a plane design that had two of those spinning wings one underneath and one on top
    Would that help or hurt ?
    What would two spinning wings do to control? Make it easier or harder?
    Would some type of relationship ship form between the wings ?
    Would one wing have to be smaller or special to get more advantage?

  3. As a kid I had a toy model of this plane I can remember already at age 5-6 how bizarre it appeared to be able to rotate the wing almost like a propeller.

  4. Yeah the navy just released and confirmed UAP footage after previously mentioning on Vice and NYT that they recovered materials from an off planet vehicle, have built and tested space time warping propulsion technology and THIS is the weirdest experimental aircraft.

  5. Whats with 2 pairs, one rotates to the front and one to the back of plane or a loop of wings that can be stretched in length in 2 centered points

  6. 2020 US Exxon mobile build 10billion $ ethylene chemistry plant in southern China,hui zhou city. Pls save lung &air. don’t want to die of toxic air… lung cancer,same as Floyd: can’t breathe –

  7. The beginning of the SSTO age, the soviets made many considerably designs of a phase craft, vs stage, phase, which is converting to a different shape and engines, they did this before the public scene 3d graphics softwares today, because everything was so drawing board, they rejected many build attemps.

  8. I wonder if modern fly by wire tech, where being unstable is a benefit (for fighters), would change the balance on designs like this. (Also I wonder if they published any discussion of a two-wing variant that would fix the asymmetry)

  9. Good video. Slight mistake at the beginning. The main problem I have is that I am colourblind and found it difficult to tell the the difference between spanswise and chordwise flow. You need to change one to blue. Fortunately I already learned aerodynamics and know what they are. You just need to consider other colorblind people that may not know
