Atreides Ornithopter
Adapted to use in the extremely dry climate of Arrakis, the
Atreides 'thopter is a very good machine, though utilises an old-style
engine system.  1/2 jet, and 1/2 helicopter, the 'thopter uses jet engines
to propel itself when speed is the necessity, and is often used in combat.
It uses its twin fan-like rear engines when stealth is required, or to
conserve fuel.  Used by the Atreides in the conflict on Arrakis, and later
by smugglers and Fremen, the Atreides 'thopter was an acknowledged
success on Arrakis and usually outperformed the sleeker Harkonnen machines.
