Description A VTOL roadable aircraft design put together by Mark Moore for the DARPA Transformer requirement set (with a very strict 8.5' W x 30' L x 9' H bounding box constraint - with the wing folded). Uses a single width passenger bay to have sufficient width for tilting ducts to achieve as low of disc loading as possible (without complex folding ducts). Based on the highly successful Bell XV-22A quad rotating duct concept.
