Interesting Design...

Recommended Posts

Yes tip powered blades were once a method of putting extra power into the rotor system.....can't remember which company started it but I remember seeing an old article on them in my helicopters class.  Kinda scary I must admit

Hiller Helicopters did it. Tip-Jet Rotor Helicopters wepage here


I saw them FIRE it up last year at the Vertical Challenge Helicopter Airshow in San Carlos... "kinda scary"? ...no, TERRIFYING! :shock:




...by the way, this year's show (EXCELLENT!) is coming up: Vertical Challenge Helicopter Airshow
