Hummingbird™ Autogyro

by   121k BaconAircraft  5 months ago

The latest in autogyro technology! The Hummingbird™ is a pusher-prop design autogyro that was designed to reach higher speeds while having much better performance than other autogyro/gyroplanes in the market.

A gyroplane/autogyro/gyrocopter is a aircraft, in which unlike a helicopter, the main rotor is not powered by any engine, but rather powered by the on-coming air, therefore providing majority of the lift that it needs to stay in the air.

Controls: (Continued below)
AG-1: Pusher prop on/off, cockpit on/off.
VTOL: Open canopy
Throttle: Activate rotor tilt, and the engine input.

Features:
- Functional cockpit and instruments
- Functional rotor control system
- Functional auto-gyration of main rotor
- High efficiency pusher prop-fan
- Sliding canopy
- Speeds up to 140mph in manuevers, dives and turns
- 60mph stall speed with autorotation

    @Planefun glad to hear you're learning about it in school. Here's a better version of the autogyro. :)

    Hey Bacon, Sorry To interrupted you but I posted a DJI Phantom 4 Using your DJI Phantom 3 Model and made some changes to it. I hope you'll forgive me but I kinda cheated out the successor system and it didn't give you credit. I hope you'll forgive me for my actions but Some Mod is Picking on me and telling me I have to scrap my changes and use the successor system but I said that I'll give full credit to you in the description, including the link to your Phantom when I repost it. Can you fix this? @BaconAircraft

    I still cant grasp the physics behind how this uses oncoming air to create lift but I like it!

    It is clever how it doesn't use a motor for the rotor blades only the tail prop

    Nice! It could have looked a bit better if the windscreen was split into two though. It seems a little big to be made out of just one bit of glass...

    @BaconAircraft honestly, since SP hates helicopter concepts, i believe this is very good.
    I don't do helicopters cause they are clumsy and unstable.
    Only thing closer i did it's the the Focke-Wulf-Fw-61 which flies acceptable
