Hi Maveric!

Model 1098---STORC, a tip turbojet helicopter the rotor of which would be inverted and locked in position, transforming the aircraft - on the ground - into an airplane. Ferrying itself at high speed overseas to its operational theater, STORC would be free of ships and transport planes, and complexity of re-assembly.

Hiller Model 1067 (transport/rescue)
Hiller Model 1084 (multipurpose-transport)

... these proposals based on the X-18.

SOURCE: X-Planes by Jay Miller (1st edition, page 140)

=================================================

Hiller Model 720 (combination of two Model 360)
Hiller Model 1005 (crane helicopter)
Hiller Model 1059 (deflected slipstream STOL aircraft)

SOURCE: One Way Up by John F Straubel

Of course, all of them were unbuilt projects ...

Hi,

the Model-1048 was based on X-18 as civil transport aircraft project.

My dear Stargazer2006,

I suggest that the Fairchild-Pilatus PC-6 Porter was the design FH-1117.

My dear Stargazer2006,

I think that report spoke about many little known aircraft and projects,
they mentioned the Hiller Model-1117,so I suggest only it was Fairchild-
Pilatus PC-6,and I am not sure.

Ok, then I already had that source and didn't know what to make of it. Perhaps allocating this to the Pilatus Porter is jumping to conclusions a bit too fast... I'll continue to investigate the matter, anyway. I'll also update the Hiller list a second time soon, there's a lot more to that name than the UH-12 series!

My Hiller list on page one has been updated.

Here is a list of as yet undesignated Hiller projects (photos provided when *):

- "FLYING SHOES", the first Zimmerman flying platform*
- Hiller autogyro*
- BARC (Besson's Aerial Railhead Crane)
- SKYBUS, a large forty-to-fifty passenger civil ram jet transport helicopter project*
- mixed-propulsion aircraft project, apparently for COIN missions* (perhaps same as Model 1059?)
- shrouded rotor VTOL proposal*
- transonic VTOL project*
- FLYING JEEP four-duct proposal for Army*
- AERIAL SEDAN four-duct personal flying car project*

(continued in next post)

(continued from previous post)

All the following undesignated projects are shown in picture form as attachments:

- FLYING CRANE Hiller/NASA helicopter to perform midair recovery of the first stage of the Saturn 5
- four-duct flying platform with bubble canopy at front (seems like an armed version)
- twin-duct flying gun platform
- tandem tilt-wing project
- twin-duct military transport aircraft with conventional tail
- twin-engine retractoplane type with additional folding-rotor retracting into wing surface
- three-duct flying-crane with pilot positioned on top
- four-duct flying-crane with bubble-type canopy at front

Not a single forum member to identify the above designs more accurately? Ah well...

An addition to the list: Model 1051 is given as the X-18 PROPELLOPLANE, although this already appears as Model 1085. The difference between the two is unknown to me, though I can speculate the former may be the paper project while the latter was the finished product.

Concerning Model 1117, it is mentioned as a "rotorcraft", so it's definitely NOT the PC-6 Porter.

1051...............initial designation of X-18 [System 451L]; became Model 1085 after modifications [System 607A]
1069...............rotor-prop convertiplane project
1082...............Multi-Purpose Turbine Powered Helicopter proposal (1958)
1099A.............TEN99A Missile Site Support Helicopter proposal to USAF (1962)
1117...............Light Armed Reconnaissance V/STOL Aircraft (1964)

Hiller ad with small drawings of models 1048, 1067 and 1084.
Also an ad for a large heavy lift helicopter, don't designation or if this design has been posted before.

No, it's actually the Model 1089, proposed circa 1961. Do you have the date of publication of the second ad, RAP?

The FH-1108 was a 1964 derivative of it, apparently a Hiller-Continental project for a tip turbojet-powered very heavy-lift helicopter.
