Hi,

the Bolkow-Derschmidt designed a nice commuter helicopter in
1962,which was accommodated 26-passengers.

Bölkow Bo310 helicopter with two intermeshing Derschmidt rotors driven by turbines of 3,200 to 3,400 hp. As in the defunct Rotodyne, rotor loading is reduced by a fixed wing and two propellers are provided for forward thrust and placed at zero pitch for hovering flight.

Presented 1963 at the Paris - Le Bourget Aerosalon
  • Power: two Lycoming T55 turboshaft engines (each with 3,400 hp)
  • Rotors: two swiveling rotors, each with a diameter of 13.20 m (43.3 ft)
  • Cruise Speed: 500 km/h (270 kt)
  • Range: 700 km (380 nm)
  • Width: 22.45 m (73.7 ft)
  • Length: 18.30 m (60 ft)
  • Height:6.45 m (21.1 ft)
  • Fuselage: 2.30 m (7.5 ft) diameter
  • Maximum Take-off Weight: 10 t (22,050 lb)
  • Capacity: 24 seat

Any idea why the cranked rotors. I assume it's like a swept wing, reducing the relative mach speed but I wouldn't imagine it would make that much difference and it would become a much more difficult structure the way the forces would act on it.

It's a "Derschmidt Rotor". Hans Derschmidt filed a patent for that rotor, which was actually
flight tested in the MBB Bo 46.
The reason was, that ´with the additional hinge the advancing blade could bend back and
so reduce tip speed somewhat, allowing for greater forward speed of te helicopter.
Tests weren't really succesful, as the system proved to be overly complex and fragile.

Bo-120 and Bo-220 seem to be related designs. My bet is that the former may have been a two-blade version while the latter was the four-blade shown in the picture (but it's only guess work I'll admit).

I think you are right My dear Stargazer,


I saw old version (Bo.120) with two-blade.
