Union of Two Flight Technologies
Multirotors have powerful and lightweight electric motors… but these aircraft use battery power for both forward flight AND lift. Due to the weight of the batteries required to keep them in the air, multirotors have limited range and poor payload efficiency.
Unlike a helicopter, a gyrocopter uses an unpowered rotor. A pusher prop gives the vehicle forward motion, and airflow rotates the rotor, providing lift, a concept know as autorotation.
Like a multirotor, powerful electric motors are used for vertical take off and landing,and like a gyrocopter, in forward flight. Our rotors provide lift via autorotation.
With Managed Autorotation, power can be adjusted to maneuver the aircraft or recharge the batteries in-flight. Thanks to the gas-powered pusher prop, we achieve many times the range of a multirotor, reducing need for heavy batteries.
Patented Managed Autorotation technology
Blended gas-electric design
State-of-the-art ground control
Integrated cargo handling system
Simulator and Static Tests
Thousands of hours have gone into refining our design over the past 3 years, through dozens of iterations and innovations, using a simulator to validate new ideas. From there we progressed to a static testing rig to test motors, speed controllers, and propellers
Scale Technology Demonstrator
As shown in the video, our Scale Technology Demonstrator is extremely flight worthy and stable in all modes of flight, from hover to cruise at 60 mph. Over a year of flight testing has thoroughly validated Managed Autorotation Technology, corroborated computer and aerodynamic analysis, and provided confidence in simulation model data. This data has proven invaluable for modeling our full-scale aircraft.
