    New rotors and rotor blades

    No, not yet, at least not ready for publication. Profile is a profile, if extruded or composite, it has the same aerodynamic properties. This is what we are investigating at the moment. No, you didn't guess. We are progressing stepwise, the 220mm blades with new internal structure are flying...

    New rotors and rotor blades

    The 9H12 MODIFIED profile is a further development of the 9H12 profile, which certainly can be called "traditional", since it is used for over 70 years. You can find more in this interesting document from 1946: http://naca.central.cranfield.ac.uk/reports/1946/naca-rb-l5k02.pdf From the...

    New rotors and rotor blades

    To lay to rest all confusion: - the traditional gyroplane blade profile is NACA 8H12 - the first tested Trendak blade is 9H12 MODIFIED - the second tested Trendak blade is ILW-LT-11.0 I hope it helped. I think, it is also worth mentioning, that the new blades are 220mm chord.

    What it is? It's a typo! No wonder, you couldn't find it. :)

    Another Tercel in the USA

    Yes, Steve, you are right, as mentioned before, another Tercel is under way to US. Unfortunately, due to some bureaucratic obstacles it will probably not make it to Oshkosh, but certainly will be presented at the PRA Convention in Mentone. Mike Bantum is trying to do his best at the moment...

    New rotors and rotor blades

    Yes, you are right, at AERO 2014 in Friedrichshafen we presented some cut-outs of the blade profiles for easy comparison. Now we are at the stage when full scale manufacturing was started and substantial numbers of blades and rotor can be tested on different testing rigs. Thank you for your...

    New rotors and rotor blades

    In the process of certification of our new Tercel gyroplane in Germany we also developed a new rotor head with build in conning angle, as stipulated by BACR T and BUT.

    New rotors and rotor blades

    We are in the process of developing new rotors for gyroplanes. Two new profiles 9H12 MODIFIED and ILW-LT-11.0 were prepared in cooperation with Institute of Aviation in Warsaw within the joined project Modern Autorotative Rotor. The first complete rotors with aluminium extruded blades have been...

    New biological crop protection season starts

    We have just started another season of biological crop protection in corn plantations. We introduce by air, the eggs Trichogramma evanescens, a tiny wasp, a parasite of the corn borer. Due to increasing demand, this year we are flying two ZEN1 gyroplanes prepared for this task.

    Push-pull rotor control cables?

    Regarding the push/pull cables we are using on our new TERCEL, we would like again to underline the aerodynamic advantage of the control cables hidden under the mast cowling instead of creating drag in free air stream. The results are confirmed by the first independent data we have from test...

    Push-pull rotor control cables?

    Artur will be at Oshkosh, but probably will not make it to Mentone. Our distributor in US, Mike Bantum should be there to present our gyrosplanes and answer all your questions. The new machine is prepared for the events and we hope we will make it there.

    TERCEL flight testing

    We can now confirm first "real world", independent performance figures obtained by the first user, our customer from Germany. On his flight from our factory airfield to Germany he registered in cruise 160kmh (100mph) at 5160rpm on our Rotax RTS turbocharged engine. He was flying at app. 1000ft...

    We deliver - to Germany

    The delivery flight to Germany has been successfully completed. On the way, some real world performance figures were obtained. 100 mph at 1000ft by 5160 rpm on our trusty Rotax RTS with Kaspar VP propeller met our expectations. Some flight and cockpit images.

    TERCEL flight testing

    The flight time building for the certificate is connected with a nice cross country, actually 3 country, Poland, Czech Republic and Germany, flight. More images on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=565276746924138&id=321871637931318
