Phoenix 7
After seeing several helicopters with unique designs, I thought I'd try my hand at it. It turned out alright, if I do say so myself...
About this creation
The cannon is relatively recoil-less, making it easy to aim and fire. That green light on the back lights up when the cool-down cycle of the weapon is complete, telling the pilot it's good to go. It fires 30mm HE rounds.



I rather like the chin-gun design. Makes it look sort of like a ball-turret.

The pilot need only move his head to aim this weapon, it is electronically controlled through his helmet.

Back view.

My first experiment with retractable landing gear. My own desgin, as far as I know.

Gear extended.

Everything about the Phoenix is built for speed. It can go from dead-cold startup to flight in thirty seconds flat. Even the secondary weapons (chain-gun, cannon) are designed to be rearmed while the craft idles; only requiring that cartridge be replaced on the weapon before the craft is off again.





The rotors incorporate a "Swept" design to greatly reduce drag.

with the bent front part it even looks a bit like a creature to me. The rotor looks a bit too small for the heli but that's just a matter of bricks. Very good detail and shape again.

Nice helicopter! I like the color scheme and the guns on the sides. Great job! Also, I'm sorry, but I can't join your group. I'm keeping my CSE creations separate of the UNE/COP struggle. Thanks anyway.

Quoting Architect of Mythica BTW, by "chaingun" do you mean the side-mounted Gatling-style rotary cannon?
Chaingun is a type of weapon that uses an external source of power (not derived from cartridge kick-back) via a continuous loop of chain similar to that of a bicycle. Basically, it is rotated using a chain mechanism.

Quoting Dave and John Xandegar Sweet design here, Pal! The segmented fuselage with the "drop nose" looks fabulous...and the overall detail is great. Love the components used for the retractable gear as well...how's it's "standing" strength? Top job, Buddy!! D&J:)
You mean how well it stands on its gear? Well, the Me 109 comes to mind...
