About the Edition

Originally designed as a target drone for the U.S. Army, the NPS hummingbird has undergone several modifications to convert it into a reliable research platform. The 163 pound remotely piloted helicopter (RPH) is powered by a Weslake Aeromarine Engines Limited (WAEL) 342 two stroke, twin cylinder, 25 hp, gasoline engine. An engine failure due to cylinder overheating halted research efforts until investigation as to the cause and subsequent corrections could be made. Costing approximately $3000 per engine, another failure is unacceptable. The tasks undertaken in this thesis were to investigate the cause of the overheat failure and improve the engine cooling system. Cooling system corrections required total redesigns of the engine cooling and engine start systems. Additionally, research of the RPH"s history revealed a need for a torsional shock absorber to be incorporated in the drive train to increase component life. The changes made to Hummingbird provide a decrease in empty weight, minimal center of gravity change and, most importantly, an increase in user safety finishing the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics with a dependable vehicle for rotary wing research.

IMPROVEMENTS Helicopters started to make significant improvements in the s. Turbine (turboshaft) engines were introduced, which provided more power per pound of weight than reciprocating engines, so payloads improved. Both the reciprocating en-gines and turbine engines continued to improve and initiated accidents less Size: KB.   “The [remotely piloted aircraft] requires much more architecture than, say, an F squadron,” Kwast said. While the ratio of people to aircraft in manned aviation is roughly to 1, he.

Through our experience in helicopter maintenance and excellent relationships with OEMs, we provide unique support options that cover the full range of helicopter MRO and support services. We are able to provide service offerings from Nose-to-Tail and be the single . A more complicated multi-channel CP helicopter will have motor power, cyclic, collective and yaw control as well as additional 'idle up' and remote gyro gain control - in this case it has six channels."

The car was a compact station wagon, and I know Ferrari has never made a station wagon, only sports cars (usually very fast ones). The car was probably American.

It may. Although the primary focus of Helicopter Resources has always been its modern and well-maintained fleet of helicopters, with the addition of a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Operators Certificate () to our operational ability we can now offer a cost effective alternative for low level budget-constrained requests.

This publication shows advantages and possible applications for variable transmission drivetrains within rotorcraft. The power requirement of a generic helicopter with constant and variable rotor speed was calculated.

Various drive train technologies that support a variable transmission were described. The prospects of this technology, its influence on the dynamic behaviour of a rotor and Cited by: 3.

The Hummingbird is much cheaper than production certified helicopters, but “cheap” is a relative term in helicopter land, count on a Hummingbird kit to easily weigh in at $,$, when done. If you're curious about the price breakdown of this bird, read the page entitled hummingbird helicopter price.
