This is a plane that flies not with wings,but with Magnus effect.The downside is, it has a crazy amount of drag.

Activate 2 to spin the "Magnus wings".

    Ok i tried something similar few days ago, but sadly the game can not simulate flow, so we can not create thrust from the rotation, with out the moving parts act like a gyroscope. If you like you can check the plane Water+Fan-wing. Fan wings are the future in stol uav.

    Tho this is just a less practical wing... its...Not gonna be useful until something else is found. And that the rotators are useless when these upgrades I mentioned below are applied.

    Hmmmm...Would it be better if the "magnus wings" were smaller but has wider wingspan so it may produce less drag and have similar lift at the same time? Have the rotator spin faster too?

    @BurkeEnterprise works like a wing I thing, lots of air pressure under neither and low uptop, im my mind it seems the paddles are almost like a pump pumping air to the bottom and out of the top, no clue if this is correct though
