Uhhh...Ryan...isn't the propeller on the wrong spot on that plane?  How can you go forward when the silly thing is on top?:blink:

It's OK Steve, there's a jetpipe poking out the top of the fuselage facing rearwards which provides forward thrust... :dry:

Ahhh ok Mark...all is good then.  I'd just think you'd get way more speed if that prop was on the front (or back) of the aircraft. 

When I worked on them helo thingies in the Navy we used to have a another theory as to how they actually flew:

"A helo is so ugly, it flies because the ground repulses it!" :laugh:

I don't know!  I think it's a miracle these things can get off the ground!

Thanks gents!

Another saying we had in the Navy referring to helicopters:  Helos don't fly, they beat the air into submission! :laugh:

They are essentially bumble bees that we stick people in, hehe....neither should fly according to the laws of aerodynamics. :blink:
