The stage of ground tests has been completed

The stage of ground tests has been completed. We checked the work of the systems and prototype units.  As expected – since the frame, gearbox housings, shafts and the rest are made of steel – the lifting force of the propellers with one motor is not enough for independent flight. The total thrust of…

An important stage has been completed!

We are glad to share the good news! We have completed the next stage of setup and testing! 🙂 We’ve tweaked the electronic revving system and it works as it should! It allows you to maintain the required speed of the propellers without the participation of the pilot, regardless of the flight mode (load on…

We continue to work after a breakdown.

We had a forced break in the project! 🙁 In the process of tuning the electronic system for maintaining the speed (tutor), an attempt was made to “unauthorized takeoff” of the apparatus. Since we did not plan to lift the aircraft into the air at this stage of testing, we did not fully adjust the…

The project is ongoing!

So we are back to the test! 🙂
During the winter of 2019-2020, serious changes were made to the design of our aircraft, according to the results of autumn tests.

Tuning hoverbike transmission and engine control automation

We completed the assembly of our prototype . The hoverbike transmission has been assembled. Manufactured the engine control automation (governer) and started its tuning. During the test, a faulty coupling was detected so we purchased and installed a new one. Now we are adjusting the variable pitch screw drives. Hits: 19

We continue to set up the transmission.

We continue to set up the transmission. We are looking for vibration sources step by step and fighting them. One of the sources of low-frequency vibration was a reverse gear. Quickly made a damper. After installation on the apparatus, we continue the tests. Hits: 20

Began setup and adjustment engine governer.

Received the ordered engine control unit – governer. Connect the device, sensors, servos. Began setup and adjustment. Hits: 4

Finished the complete assembly of the mechanical part of the prototype.

Finished the complete assembly of the mechanical part of the prototype.   Completed assembly and adjustment of gears. We start testing and adjusting the transmission. The main task is to remove vibrations as much as possible. Step by step we check all the nodes of the transmission, and if necessary, we promptly make changes. After…

Tests of the new gearbox.

Manufactured and assembled new gear. Now we are testing. Required to check the correctness of calculations, assembly and configuration of the gearbox. The blades of the variable pitch screw are fixed in the small pitch position, since only the gearbox is being checked now. Electronic pitch control system is not connected. Test video watch on…

Electric motors are the future, ICE is the present : what will be used for hoverbikes, flying motorcycles, flying cars

The most frequently asked question during the exhibition (and later, in the incoming messages from visitors of our website, is why do we make our flying motorcycle with internal combustion engines (ICE) when the prevailing trend is electric motors? We’d like to clarifty that our scheme with variable-pitch propellers (CPP) and several engines – ANY…
