    Good read but clearly biased towards the V-22. Although it does mention a crash it says in the intro to the craft:

    It's controversial because it's killed over 30 marines in crashes.

    I'm calling BS on this tidbit:

    I'm curious how it would maintain stability with one engine completely vertical. How would the craft counter torque in the one engine in this mode?

    I see now. One engine can power both rotors. That makes sense.
