Boeing X-50A Dragonfly

X-50A Dragonfly

The Boeing Canard Rotor/Wing advanced technology demonstrator completed its first hover flight Dec. 3, 2003, at the U.S. Army Proving Ground in Yuma, Ariz. During the flight, the demonstrator known as the X-50A Dragonfly flew for about 80 seconds, lifting off vertically from the launch site and hovering at an altitude of 12 feet above the ground. It then vertically landed. The CRW is a revolutionary aircraft that combines the speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft with the flexibility of rotary-wing flight. The CRWs rotor is designed not only to spin during vertical takeoffs and landings but also to stop turning during flight and convert into a fixed wing to provide lift for high-speed forward flight

Boeing took Da Vinci's early drawing of his take on a hovering machine(helicopter). Thought that a book about him was a success so maybe theyd make some money from copying the design

Exactly how big is that thing? I kind've got the impression it was more a big model than anything full size?
