Hi Pioneer!

I just found a side-view line drawing of the Oscar AH-4!

Reading the article it seems that Asboth used a non hinged rotorblade design. Is that feasible? Or is that the reason his designs dissapeared?

Just read in the latest vertiflite issues : Boris Yur'ev used exactly such
a rotor in his designs and the 1-EA not only flew, but even achieved
an unofficial altitude record with 605m .

here is a strange Asboth design.
It's a patent drawing. Compared to those other "flying bird cages", it's a very clean and elegant
design, I think.
But THAT site actually seems to be a gold mine ! It's a pity, that those pictures are very low res indeed,
but as it is run by an official German foundation, maybe there's a chance to get some help.
The basic website is made with creative artists in mind, but we all ARE artists, aren't we ? ;)

Do the patents clarify what the end plates on the wings were intended for? My first guess was that they had control surfaces making use of the rotor wash, but I don't see any mechanisms.

In UK patent 432245, for an earlier design, they are described as 'stabilising surfaces' pivoting on a horizontal axes aligned longitudinally.

Based on recent research, Asboth managed well himself :)
An image from her book. The second is the original version, found after his death.

Oskar von Asboth AH-3 helicopter

A photo of the AH-3 model:

from Index.hu article (https://index.hu/tudomany/2016/11/28/a_nagy_asboth-sejtes_feltalalo_vagy_kokler/ in Hungarian) which, is interestingly titled "Asboth, genius or cheat".
