For generations man has been locked into a mind set that innovation is just as wrong as a soldier disobeying an order. This is what I mean: the powers of industry would have us believe that technology that can remove a need for fossil fuel consumption would destroy our economic landscape. Well I say destroy it!
Let’s get real. If we could create a gear sustem that would mean 100 or even 1000 rpms per crank of a pedal, would people still buy gas?
The link above shows a flywheel defying gravity. Now what would happen if we put simular flywheels at the ends of rutters of a man powered helicopter? The obkection to man powered flight has always been that man is not strong enough to stay airborne.
A flywheel stores energy to convert it into centrifugal force. A series of wheels could redistribute the work and make a system simular to a mountain bike capable of flight.
The link below shows that human powered flight has been recently accomplished, but the devise is huge and not practical.
Our design can compact things a bit.
The gear and screw will turn the flywheel at the end of the main propeller blades.
I am planning on going with the Asymmetrical foil, with a root out cut cose to the hull.
Blade root cut out
Blade twist and taper leads to large angles of attack and large blade surfaces at the root. However, close to the root, the blade is travelling over the hull, so the generated downwash does not contribute to helicopter thrust. For this reason, rotorblades are often cut out near the root. Another reason for rotor blade cut out is to reduce the effects of potential reverse flow (on the retreating rotorblade) when flying at high speeds.
Before we get too crazy we need a power source that can help run the secondary systems like communications and guidance.
The shaft that turns the flywheel is going through the core of the blades.
