                                                   JETCOPTER FOR USAF

                                                                more info in NEWS



         Very likely The military could be first VTOL users , army could save a lot of resources on logistic with new VTOL's




                                It's time to change helicopters !

                                                     


helicopters 100 years in use without major changes 



 Meet


 

        This is not propeller !

Jet stream always wins 


too many samples today where more powerful and efficient jet stream overcome simple stream . Propelled VTOL's are temporary solution , axial jet turbines for airplanes , radial fans - for next gen copters !

Jet stream  wins everywhere 





This is not a propeller :

Idea 

 USA patent  , publication US-2019-0016453-A1 


                                                          replacing main and tail rotor by double centrifugal air turbines 
                                                                    replacing cyclic control by airflow vectoring


         

       4 points airflow vectoring 



practically proven Harrier jump jet 4 nozzles thrust vectoring system

All modern VTOL constructions were tested long time ago and ... failed 


Presently it's boom of VTOL designs , majority of them are just recalls from 1950's , second attempt to bring them to life . Today only too lazy not offered own VTOL aircraft design and there are reason - electric motors . Looks so simple - just add 4 rotors + motors around the cabin and here we have - new aircraft . But reality is not so simple .






                                       

                                                               Why not multicopters ?

                            


1st multicopter law :  as smaller rotors are , as more powerful motors you will need .
2nd multicopter law : more rotors = more motors = more problems

3rd multicopter law : more rotors = more air drag

                                                                                                                                                                       

Why Jetcopter will be more efficient VTOL ?


JETcopter will be able to use air lifting power , helicopter not  . 


JETcopter evolution 




Engine  : 2 x  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



Low production costs ( compared with 6 place helicopter ) :

 


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
