It has been 9 months and still there is only a single self recorded, self edited video made with no independent reporters available. Considering that to day, ducted electric fans remain a novelty in the radio control hobby community, I would have expected to have seen a huge amount of attention. Unfortunately, ducted fans never provide the lift predicted by formula. The most popular example of failure was the Rockwell HiMaT, an unpiloted Hi Manueverable Tech demonstrator that was supposed to use the magic of "Air Entrainment_ for vertical liftoff that never got off the ground with vertical lift only. It was using a jet engine too. . But I am sure these questions are just co incidences. Also, they just announced 90M of start up investment from , wait for it, an american or english speaking country which can be immediately contacted for a statement? No, Chinese. the link pages from their press release can not be translated by google. No question that this is just an oversight. But altogether, I would like to see another flight, with an independent reporter present. That would quash most questions.
