Flying Lunar Module from Apollo Era

My first official project under my Mad Card Musings header- A lightweight, mini drone body cover that looks like an Apollo Lunar Module! Hooray!
And, as usual, I'll upload my design sheets so any one who dares can become a mini Lunar Lander Pilot!
More to come!

Are you thinking to pilot the drone with a DSKY unit?

DSKY unity would be an awesome addition for the controller. Great idea!

Here are some images of some of my test builds to see how much weight my little drone will carry. Also, looking top down, I tried to leave the whole thing hollow as not to block the thrust of the four blade units.

Ere's a detailed video of how I created the lander model in Blender. Prepare to have your minds blown.

The videos are not showing in either Chrome or Firefox & are not showing whether I'm logged in or logged out.

And now I'm on the laptop and they are showing just fine.
While still not showing on the PC.
Which did an update last night.

With computers who can really actually ever know what is or is not happening to cause or not cause a thing.
