Take off «Frigate» vertically, like a helicopter, and then switch to more economical mode.

— the Plane is, by definition, spends less fuel for the same range than the helicopter — said the ravens.

Now, the developers have already made able to fly a test version, and this means that you can now move on to creating heavy variants blah BLAH.

On machines with vertical take-off capable in the future to move like a plane, work for Lockheed Martin and other world aviation leaders, so in the «Kronstadt» consider development of this direction is very promising.
