A compound autogyro has a unique system of rotor blade retraction and vectored thrust. Redundant thrust systems provide for emergency conditions. Located in the upper mast are twin gas lines leading to a hub section of the rotor. In the hub, they divide the mass flow into two additional gas lines reaching to the tip ends of rigid rotor blades. A revolving, upper section of the rotor mast is attached to a lower, non-rotating section by a spherical bearing. Directly beneath this attach bearing is a distribution plenum, which receives the mass flow from eac...
1. A compound autogyro having built in redundancy for safety purposes, comprising:a fuselage devoid of any tail rotors having an upper surface for supporting at least one rotor blade; a number of fixed wings supported by said fuselage, said fixed wings having control surfaces and high lift means; at least one rotor blade rotatively supported upon said upper surface of said fuselage; and a plurality of jet propulsion engines supported by said fuselage for generating thrust to achieve flight and lift, and operatively connected to said at least one rotor bl...
