grite13 said:A variant of the cycloidal propulsion systems was the twin cycloid proposed in East Germany in the early 1960's for a hybrid airship design known as the "Delfin Luftschiff". A fairly large model was built of the system and tested in a wind tunnel - I seem to remember Leipzig. Have never seen any of the results from the tests.

the book, when I'm at home again during the weekend.
