What? No Wind?


WOW! No wind here yesterday, so I went out to play.

I think I'm getting used to this model now.

What fun!

Can't say, for sure. I like the looks of the 3-blade, but the 2 is more responsive, and sounds more like a whirlybird when it goes by.

Sure does sound nice , I'm contemplating making a 2 blade rotor to try out, BTW the image quality of your camera is excellent! even in low light!

Like, I know anything Gary, but I have a couple of questions as I wait on some CF. Can this design be modified any to have the more angle on the rotor so that it flies less nose high? Also, what affect would the rudder being taller but with less of a vertical fin have on flight? Most of my planes that size have about a 6" rudder.
Like I said, what do I know, nothing about Autogyros. What kind of light system are you using?

Great last video.

Tymbrewolf,

Hey, I don't know anything about these things; I'm just experimenting, and having fun. I would guess that, yes, you can increase the rotor angle, and yes, your fin/rudder will work just fine.

The rotor LED is powered by a large watch battery in the opposing blade. The others run from the regulated 5V of the receiver (supplied by the ESC). You can tap off neg and +5V from any unused channel on the receiver.

Have fun!

Gary

Hi Gary,

I'm making a 2 blade rotor, are you using the "classic" pitch set by blade overlapping there? (around 3mm?)

Tymbrewolf,

My lights are home made.

Antonio,

I shimmed the T/E with scraps of the same thickness as the blade material.

Nearly there, I'm waiting for the glue to dry, I'm hoping to test them today.

Antonio, what is your hub material under the cloth? Looks like spokes?

TJ,

THe material under the cloth is 3mm depron, I'm not sure what you mean by "spokes" the blades have 2 carbon rods each of 1mm.

It might be the centre plastic botle cap, (cut down and trimmed to secure the centre tube).

Sorry Gary, for invading your thread!


Antonio.
