JETcopter structure



all components can be changeable  - for example  will be possible to upgrade JETcopter fuselage with latest  versions of power plant or airturbines  .



WHY JETCOPTER WILL BE MORE EFFICIENT VTOL ?



Jetcopter and helicopter climb ways  . JETcopter is able to use air lifting power , helicopter not  . 




JETcopter evolution 



Engine  :


       
 2 x 450 hp  automotive with  duplicated fuel , cooling  , power supply systems .


 


 



Reliable and less mechanically complex 


no swash plates , no cyclic , no hydraulics , no clutch .







Take off :  helicopter mode or  plane mode
 fly as plane 












will be able to land at auto parking ,
will be able to maneuver safe between cars











powered by reliable automotive motors ,
may not need helicopter pilot licence 
much easier to pilot









Production costs ( compared with 6 place helicopter ) :

 rotors  -   70 %  cheaper 

carbon fiber fuselage - 50 % cheaper

 motors - 90 % cheaper






Operational costs

predicted 60-70 % lower than helicopter










 better aerodynamics
better functionality











 equipped with 2 parachute life saving system 











fuselage all made from carbon fiber

                                         

                                           


















Tilt wings with 4 vectoring nozzles
