Rotordyne Helicopter blades Suggestion

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about this for a while now and I'm wondering with the new stuff with the robotic parts and the new helicopter blades, why not get ones with tip jets on them like the fairey rotordyne, reason being with the helicopter motor (R7000 turboshaft engine) produces a lot of toque and i don't want to do a duel rotor design, for mass issues as well.

An interesting idea, but I don't think that KSP's physics system would handle it particularly well and it's hard to see what advantage they would have over a conventional rotor.

And then I got distracted on Wikipedia reading about the project (another promising piece of British technology that never reached its full potential :() and then went and made one; I think the results speak for themselves...


Any landing you can walk away from and all that...
