While searching through Google Patents for Piasecki designs, I ran across the following in the links below. If Overscan feels this should be attached to the XV-1 thru XV-3 thread, go ahead and attach this there. I wasn't sure.

It's the Y-Wing Fighter from Star Wars!!! Actually, scroll down and you'll see a single engine version that will remind you of the WW2 Lerche VTOL fighter design.

Re: Various Piasecki Designs

Most of those have bupkus to do with Piasecki.

As stated in a different thread... check the name(s) of the inventors and assignee(s) before posting the links.

Hesham,
The very first patent in the first post, was actually built as the Piasecki 16H-1 and work with the shrouded tail rotor continues to this day with the Piasecki X-49A.
As far as the patent in Reply #3, that patent is specifically for a control system and, whilst sponsored by Piasecki, I do not think the aircraft displayed represents any specific Piasecki design but is rather a generic drawing to illustrate the control system.
