About this creation

Welcome to the NAIA Observer, a father of legacies.

The Observer, one of the National Aerospace Intelligence Agency of Islandasia's most acclaimed aircraft, is a technologically advanced turbine-powered autogiro, dubbed the Observer (due to the fact it is used for reconnaissance missions). The Observer is a single-manned tripod lightweight vertical-and-horizontal flight aircraft. It is light enough to be pulled into the air vertically by means of the turbine engines. Once airborne, the engines rotate to pull the aircraft into a flat position, similar to that of a hang glider.



The Observer has undergone strict testing to limit noise emission, since the aircraft is used on reconnaissance missions. Note that the back leg of the tripod, once airborne, becomes a vertical stabilizer to aid in steering.



The Observer’s enormous power plants enable a recorded top speed of 219 mph, though the aircraft rarely surpasses 100 mph while it is on a mission. The aircraft has not yet been tested at altitudes surpassing 4,000 feet; otherwise the pilot would require an oxygen mask, which would require additional technology implants.



Are you wondering where the pilot’s controls are? Visit the latest Observer to learn all about it!





Two rapid-fire machine guns are installed for self-defense.



The underside of the Observer becomes the back during flight, containing a video and still camera used for photographing enemy ground and troop movement. Upon landing, the engines simply rotate to allow a smooth approach to its destination (without a runway, of course). The Observer is not the best aircraft in the NAIA design books; it is prone to flip or dive at a moment’s notice in the event of strong winds.



See how the engines maneuver the flight pattern?



Though this Observer is currently out of date, it has been an inspiration to many Lego builders and is the father of a proud legacy. Visit the 2008 Observer and the 2010 Observer.
