Hovering Efficiency Chart
  • Carlos, not sure if anyone else is interested.
    I found this diagram comparing hovering efficiencies
    of various full -sized rotor-craft. I then 'massaged' onto
    this 4-cycle log-linear paper.
    I have plotted what I have calculated is the position of
    a model RC helicopter (T-Rex 450). I would be interested
    in data on other RC rotor-craft.

    To view the chart below in full size, just click on it.

  • That is really interesting. Thank you for sharing your research with us. Yes, I would love to see other RC helicopters added to the graph, too.
