    Yep, hence why I said it looks clumsy but I guess because it is tilt rotor because smaller diameter props might not be able to lift the 609 from the ground vertically i'm guessing?

    Think of how big a helicopter's rotors are...

    A UH-60 Blackhawk for example has a fuselage length of 50' 7.5", and the rotor diameter is 53' 8".
