    Composite Blades and Birds

    Pure Carbon is used in modern helicopters but not for gyro blades. So the question is whether classical composite designs like the one used in Magni blades are resistant for "explosions" caused by an external hit.

    Composite Blades and Birds

    There are several arguments pro and contra composite blades, for example used in a Magni. But what's going on in the case of a rotor hit from a bird. The popular aluminium rotor blades will accept it without a crucial damage. And the composite blades ? Will they crack or burst ? There is a...
