Alright, here's the second version. Not really different from the first except I put more time into it. The same principle of flight applies: a single ICE generates electricity for 4 electric motors that drive the proprotors, which fold up when not in use. An additional 2 motors drive the rear wheels for locomotion on the ground, when the aircraft is "kneeling", at up to perhaps 20mph, allowing the aircraft to taxi without the use of its props, saving energy.
There's a lot of blanks that need to be filled in though. I don't know what engine would be the best generator (i.e inline or boxer petrol, diesel, wankel or atkinson cycle), or whether to use AC or DC motors in the nacelells. I might need /o/'s help for the engine decision but I'm not sure If I'm willing to go there yet. Anyway, here's the schematic.
