New Tractor news

Postby Steve_SP » Mon Dec 17, 2012 10:50 pm

Hi


The IL ( Instytut Lotnictwa founded in 1926 - aviation research institute ) in Warsaw is working on a new tractor gyro - the I-28 prototype is almost complete and hopefully first flight is not too far off.

I understand the rotor has been designed with input from Avation Artur Trendak ( Zen1 ) - news published today on the AAT website shows that AAT and IL have agreed to work as a consortium to complete the development and in the future produce the I-28 - news here

This is a really innovative project - I wish them well and look forward to hearing about the first flight soon.

More here on the IL website - Google translate can help

Enjoy

I like it. We need more creativity in gyro design. Do you know if the prototype is flying?
