An aircraft compensates for asymmetry of engine failure by drawing part of the energy produced by the still-operating engine to generate thrust at the tip of the opposite wing. For example, the left engine drives its own thrust on the left wing, but a portion of the energy the left engine produces is delivered at a propeller at the tip of right wing. Similarly, the right engine drives its own thrust on the right wing, but a portion of the energy the right engine produces is delivered at a propeller at the tip of the left wing. In this way, every pair of ...
1. Method for avoiding asymmetric propulsion of an aircraft including a first engine and a first wing tip propeller on a first side of the aircraft and a second engine and a second wing tip propeller on a second side of the aircraft, the method comprising: during normal operation of the first and second engines: (a) deriving drive power from the first engine and applying the derived drive power to the second wing tip propeller, and (b) deriving drive power from the second engine and applying the derived drive power to the first wing tip propeller, and wh...
