An V-22? That one is a military-only aircraft. Even if the designers remove all references to military service, it's still a first for TLG to release a set of a current military vehicle. Also, this is a possible paint scheme in black and orange (minus the Marines inscriptions, of course):

Also, could it be an AW609? It's a civillian aircraft similar to the V-22, and was partly developed by Bell (Although Bell is no longer involved). It's reasonable to mistake the two, although I don't think that they would market it as a Bell.

Finally, a Bell license opens the door for other Textron Aviation licenses, such as Cessna, Hawker and Beechcraft.

Not quite - remember the Blue Power Jet (Creator 3-in-1, 31309, 2015) and the Air Race Jet (Technic, 2017).  This Bell-licensed tiltrotor will probably resemble the V-22 about as closely as those two sets resembled the F-35.

A licensed Cessna product would be a dream come true.

Actually, that kind of vehicle was made back in 2004 in 8434...

Hi, I'm nearly back from Nuremberg and wrote down all my experiences at https://www.lc-jrx.com/en/2020/01/28/news/lego-technic-summer-sets-2020-552.html

The Osprey will come in dbg and orange and is equipped with Control+

Is it similar to the picture I posted earlier? And does it have any military marks?

Similar but without military marks/symbols

They really clearly reassembled the Osprey

What are these new panels you mention that fit to the 3x13 curved panels?

How big is it?

Is it realy a control+ set or is it used as the old motors?

it's control+
PF is history.

Control+ battery box and 1 motor

The mentioned functions need 4 motors.
Or 5 if the rotors have a motor each

@jrx did you manage to check the hub used? The Technic hub seems to be a total overkill for 1 motor, is it the AAA hub or a "dumb" PU battery box maybe?

It’s long but diameter is smaller than former transport plane - if I remember it right

It is C+ or PoweredUp - but I think only one motor

Only one motor as far as I was able to spot. Different functions are managed by gear box.

It was nit possible ti check as the plane was glued to the ground and had glued bricks

With four gearbox-controlled functions, it looks like this will be the most interesting set of the wave (or even of the year) from a mechanical standpoint.

I did a very ugly sketch. Hope you can guess what I meant – I think I'm better with building than with drawing :D

(btw: why do I can't upload a small picture like this to EB???)

This set sounds very interesting, I'd love an approximation of its dimensions..

Hard to guess. There wasn't enough time to count the exact dimensions. Very rough guess: 40 to 50 cm long, around 50 cm wide and 10 to 15 cm height.

So they are like the 3x13 curved panel but taper to one side?

That doesn't sound logic,
the idea of control+ is remote control by smartphone
or will it be something like 8043 with gearbox control by motor?
