Single Jet Engine
Variable Pitch
Overlapping Rotor Disks
Fuel Tank
4 ft Diameter

Features

Fuel:
Gasoline

Liquid fuel still provides ~6x more energy density even though turbines only use ~10% of the calorific value.

On-Board
Power Generation

400W of on board power generation to meet the energy required by payload. (10kW version)

Variable
Pitch

Fight controls achieved by varying rotor pitch while maintaining constant RPM, allows the engine to be operated at peak performance

Overlapping
Rotor Disks

Overlapping rotor disks allows for a higher payload capacity in a smaller footprint.
Footprint: 4 ft diameter.
