Autogyro Or Gyrcopter Project...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys ,

I haven't posted on the forum since 2008 when i was last year at the university. Some of my old posts: http://www.productde...__fromsearch__1

 

Now I work at company that is dealing with manufacturing an autogyros or gyrocopters. We are new company in that business but we are trying to make things on our own way and we hope people to like us. I dare say that the entire project is made by me, but most of the mechanisms are made by my colleague which is mechanical engineer.

 

Off-topic: I would like to show and my 3d anthropometric model of human body that I've made for the ergonomic design of our gyrocopter.

 

The project:

Looks like a fun project!

 

The new renders are better than the originals which made it look a bit like a toy gyrocopter, but I think they could still be improved a bit.

 

What rendering sofware are you using? Is there a reason the background is so pixelated?

It is an interesting project. The rear propeller has an interesting configuration. As it is closer to the main rotor it will use more power to compensate for autorotation of the fuselage, thus implying excess fuel consumption, as opposed to using a longer driveshaft and moving the propeller more towards aft. It would have no measurable loss if it had a double rotor configuration as that of used on Kamov choppers. The `neck` above the fuselage looks dangerously skinny. Keep on improving!!!

I don't know how much you are familiar with gyrocopter's configuration. I can tell you that on most of the gyrocopters which are world known, the configuration rear propeller - main rotor is the same as that on my project. You can make look at gyrocopters like: Ela - http://www.elaaviation.com.au/product-08.html ; MTO3, Calidus, Cavalon - http://www.auto-gyro.com/ ; ArrowCopter - http://www.arrow-copter.com/home_en.html ; MagniGyro - http://www.magnigyro.it/ .. and etc.

Hey guys ,finally we hava made the prototype, we have modify it little bit from what is origanally on the renders, but the gyro looks pretty cool and flies perfectly. Here are some pics and video
