It sounds like my knackered old Flymo, but it is rather more headturning than a P92 Echo or an EV-97.

I fully expect the Iranians to be showing it off as their new fighter, however.

Ingenious, but I'm sure we would like to know a whole lot more about it - its designation for a start! Have any figures been released?

Well, it doesn't appear to be exactly overpowered from the video; but that might not be the idea at this stage, not knowing for sure what the concept really is beyond being a light weight fun plane .
