  • use pressure to suck air in

  • The bottle is too unsophisticated. It’s a big volume with exponential depressurization. Perhaps you need to design an “air battery”, meaning, intentionally create a pressure vessel that’s as complex as batteries in managing the energy so that you can keep the discharging rate at the nozzle at the ideal pressure independent of the volume

  • What about a tail rotor comprised of a turbine and an EDF? Air directed through the tail to turn the turbine, in turn spinning the fan. Or perhaps a simple belt driven tail. I'm not sure how much friction a belt would create, but the turbine for the main rotor could be created with an slot for a belt, and the belt twists to 90 degrees as it goes through the tail boom, allowing for a tail rotor. Just thinking of some ideas from my own experience with RC helis (hence my FIworld pic).

  • Love the video! I am curious, would it be advantageous to use something like an aluminum water bottle to store higher pressures in? The rest of the system would have to be upgraded to handle the higher pressure but I think it could be crazy enough to work!

  • You could get a longer flight by removing the nozzle on the tail boom. Vintage 3ch RC helicopters had a frisbee like disc on the tail boom instead of a rotor. This disc limited the spin rate to something manageable in a hover, and the curve acted like a wing enabling straight forward flight.

  • Hey Tom. Have you tried a conic helicopter, where the blades rotate above the tip of a cone? I remember seeing this way back. IIRC, it has the advantage of having a low centre of gravity making it very stable and you can use deflector fins on the cone's surface to act as a means of counter rotation. Also, the cone acts as a lifting body. I'm actually unsure why development never went much further.

    Jack Adrian ZappaJack Adrian Zappa6 päivää sitten
  • Hey tom , please try liquid nitrogen or dry ice as your pressure source (inside bottle) so that it can give higher flight time and take sufficient safety measures good luck

  • You only needed a ball valve on the nozzle so that it seals once the bottle disconnects from the line.

  • what if u went with a 2 smaller bottle and smaller propeller essentially the same setup but with 2 smaller bottles just a thought........

    Tyrone DavidTyrone David6 päivää sitten
  • I think you need a separate release mechanism so that the bottle can get to a very high pressure before disconnecting. notice your last try was working before pressure and thus rotor speed and lift dropped again. maybe a mechanism that releases automatically once the bottle reaches full pressure.

  • I think those bottles will go up to about 100 psi. I don’t get the sense that you’re up there. If you want butter momentum transfer you might put a little bit of water upstream of your turbine. Make the air push the water, and when that water hits the turbine, it will spin the turbine. The tailboom is going to respond to gravity and give it a pitching moment. You might consider a static piece of that carbon tube sticking out the front to balance it. Winglets on the tips of the rotors do wonderful things for reducing loss. There are big wings where they will do a 10% reduction in drag. Some of the design constraints going into the commercially available propellers are speed of mass production.

  • Maybe, you should put the air inlet conector right below the rotor, so the lift is balanced, it is definetly the main reason whythe copter is going forward every time...

  • Why not try a small multi blade propeller (8 blades) to increase efficiency?

    Sam ChiuSam Chiu10 päivää sitten
  • You need a check valve for the inlet nozzle. Then you don't have to manage the outward flow, and you retain a little more air for propulsion. Looks like you're 90% there, and you just have to work on that very difficult 10%

    Jerry JohnsonJerry Johnson11 päivää sitten
  • Look up early helicopter designs. Very early models have two rotors rotating in opposite direction with an angle toward each other, (like a very shallow v) the steeper the angle the more stable is the helicopter. But it will have costs in efficiency. The reason is that if the machine tips to one side the rotor gains efficiency and the opposite loose it, pushing the machine back into a balanced position.

  • The shock diamonds don't necessary mean that your flow is supersonic. It only means that the air outside is compressing the flow enough to make it compress on itself and then explode, creating the shock diamonds. You can have shock diamonds with water behind a ship, but I hope you agree that the water behind a ship isn't supersonic.
