Im am very interested in this kind of aircraft. Did the USSR have any post war tilt-rotor projects ? I only know of the Mi-30 and the M-12.
Russian emigre Nikolai Zhuchenko worked in Yugoslavia, in 1937 officially received the order from the Yugoslav Air Force to build konvertoplan "Aerostatoplne". Military supposed to equip these machines as an experimental aircraft carrier transport "Zmaj" (later, after the occupation of the German Navy has received the name "Drache" / beginning of November 1942 served in combat conditions, the world's first ship - helicopter carrier with Fl-282 "Kolibri" on board )luedo34 said:Are there any other early tiltrotor / tiltprop designs apart from the well known Baynes Heliplane, the Fa 269 and the Weserflug P 1003/1?
Apparently according to this site, http://www.hitechweb.genezis.eu/vtol6.htm, the lack of cyclic control, together with the small engine output of the Mikron powerplant, led to lack of control of the three axis.Thanks redstar 72, thanks borowik, very interesting stuff indeed.
Are there any technical data for the Yugoslawian aircraft?
