Testing the Mk2 2-bladed rotor

Some test results are shown here.  The current plan is to build and test a 5-bladed version.  Although this will be more expensive than the 2-bladed version, the advantages for achieving our goals are decisive. 

  1.   To allow the elimination of ailerons by instead using slowly auto rotating  lift-rotors, without a vibration roadblock.
  2.  To reduce rotor noise, by reducing aerodynamic pressures. The vehicle should be as quiet as possible.
