In Response To: Falcon in Popular Science (Mid7night)

: I don't know who is responsible for the art - PopSci artists or someone from
: the aerospace industry - but this is just so close it's laughable!

: Online article here

: July Cover:

: Another image from the article:

: "Future VTOL concepts..." I'm not taking issue with the concept
: itself; I think it looks awesome, even though they basically drew a 'more
: realistic' version of the Falcon from Reach. My issue is with the fact
: that PopSci uses this concept as their poster-child for "Future VTOL
: concepts". REALLY? How "future" is it if it's basically a
: redrawn V-22?
: As someone who actually works in the industry, AND routinely works on VTOL
: projects, I honestly find it a little insulting that this concept is the
: best they could come up with for a future VTOL. It just feels lazy. It's
: like they just said, "Well, Bungie put a tiltrotor in Reach, and
: that's set 500+ years in the future, so that's good enough." I've
: seen them come up with WAY crazier things for other articles.

: At least if you're going to rip off Halo and Bungie for future VTOL concepts,
: at least use the really cool ones like the Pelican, Hornet or
: Sparrowhawk!!

Well, if it's something that will be ready by next week, it would still apply, right? I mean, next week is "the future" too. :)

Very reminiscent of the Falcon though,, agreed!
