Hummingbird™ Autogyro

by   113k BaconAircraft  4 days 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

    @spasmsofjustice Yeah, It's a wonderful cockpit. I don't see any reasons of remaking one :)

    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 oo I won't be making a gyro from it. I'll be making the British hypos Onich landspeedcreator record breaking bike. From it.

    @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

    @BogdanX Thanks for the feedback.
    It is known that the craft is not very stable when the autogyration speed is quite low in the start, I'd be more than happy if you can find a way to fix such issue. :)

    kinda clumsy flying at start, until you get used to it.
    Cockpit canopy visual/mechanics are just breath-taking.
    Really cool concept, impeccable assembled.
    Good job
