Justo,

It's from UFO Magazine, Vol. 14, No.5  1999. But the artist is one Bill Rose. So here you go:

I knew there was a jet version of the XF5U, but I had not seen the drawings. Thanks for sharing.
As a side note, I don't think a jet powered flapjack would have been a good idea. Seems to me the whole concept needs propeller slipstream to work. By putting jets (especially early generation ones) on that platform, you get something even trickier than a Cutlass to takeoff and land.
Speaking of taking off, is there any description of the proposed landing gear?

  • Any landing you can walk away from, is a good one.

Yes, the jet concept would have negated the whole concept.

Oh my bad. :D  Fictional huh? You know, it wouldn't look too out of place in a sci-fi film, now that you mention it.

I was reading in "Radical wings" that apparently the V-173 was tested in a wind tunnel with the props rotating in both directions (tips going up outboard/ tips going down) and they found very small differences in lift and drag. They did measure a much larger change in longitudinal stability. this must be somewhere on an NACA report on the NTRS, it would be interesting to dig that up and read the actual details.

Not to be pedantic, but shouldn't the title be "F5U-2", not "F3U-2"?
 
I'm not too sure that a turbojet version would do that well, a turboprop version, though....

Absolutely correct, sorry ! Corrected   :-[
