That can be done with 4 gliders, although it's still interesting that it was found accidentally:

What were you looking for, exactly? A MWSS-to-herschel converter?

I'd settle for any signal, but yes. The current Orthogonoids have geometry challenges that pad their size, and the limiting factor in their repeat time is the syringe. Repeat time is more important for single-channel operations than probably any other constructor design, so I'm trying to give that fire some better fuel.

I suspect that the drifter catalyst and its variants also have odd transformations, since both objects are robust.

It's nice to have syntheses like this. Unfortunately, in this case, there are several pairs of gliders that would have had to pass through each other earlier (i.e. they would have already collided before this phase). To make sure this doesn't happen, it is usually a good idea to backtrack all the gilders a certain amount (e.g. far enough away that they are in four distinct clouds, one coming from each direction) and then run them to see if any unwanted interactions occur first.
