Aerial Combat Frame "Blue Angel"

"Boy, Ted, they just don't come out to the air shows anymore. Used to be, people gathered in the tens of thousands to watch ace pilots perform stunts and aerobatics."

"Well, Bill, isn't the problem obvious? No frames."

"No frames?"

"No frames, Bill. A mobile frame is the best at what it does, and the people know it. So they go to an air show, and they don't see any frames, so they know they're not getting their bang for their buck, you know?"

"Well, what do want me to do, Ted? Build a frame for flying in aerial stunt shows?"

"No, Bill, I want you so build a transforming frame for flying in aerial stunt shows."

"...You're a man of the people, Ted."

This actually started life as a failed attempt at a bird-based Ijad frame, of which only the folding wing concept still remains. If I could change anything, the head would fold for transformation instead of having to be removed for repositioning. Ideally, the legs would come together in flight for a more streamlined appearance as well, but I lack either the parts or the inspiration to pull that off at the moment.

That's amazing on all accounts!

I love the arm blades/wing tips idea, and boy, what an excellent use of the blue angels color scheme!

Story really ties the whole thing together. Great build as well. I really like the doubled vert stabilizers as well, just look awesome.
