eurocopter x3 high speed hybrid

Recommended Posts

Innovatore, veloce, sensazionale... Ma è brutto! :rotfl:

 

Scusate non mi sono trattenuto... Comunque la foto era sul sito di EC da un po', me l'ha fatta notare un mio collega un paio di giorni fa. In effetti la soluzione non è delle più originali ma le prestazioni le danno ragione! Che mercato potrebbe avere secondo voi? Secondo me un eventuale applicazione di questa soluzione a qualche modello potrebbe insidiare quello potenziale del tilt rotor di AW, il 609, anche se il convertiplano italo americano (anzi, da un po' solo italo :asd: ) ha una maggiore velocità di crocera, che però si fa pagare cara in termini di prezzo/ora di volo.

Eurocopter: ibrido X3 raggiunge 333 km/h

Il dimostratore tecnologico X3 ha raggiunto i 333 km/h di velocità, conseguendo in anticipo sui tempi il primo obbiettivo del programma per l’elicottero ibrido. Lo annuncia oggi il costruttore francese, dieci giorni dopo la prova di velocità. Dal primo volo in settembre la macchina ha raggiunto - aggiunge Eurocopter - una quota di 3.810 metri e virate con angoli di inclinazione fino a 60°

Nuovo record .... 472 km/h ....

 

X3 breaks helicopter speed record ....

 

Eurocopter is claiming a pair of unofficial helicopter speed records following the latest test flights of its X3 compound rotorcraft at the beginning of June.

The Marseille-based helicopter manufacturer says that the X3 on 7 June, flown by test pilot Hervé Jammayrac, attained 255kt (472km/h) in level flight. Several days earlier Jammayrac hit 263kt during a descent.

Si pensa ai prossimi passi ....

 

Eurocopter Ponders X3 Helicopter’s Next Steps ....

 

Eurocopter's X3 has claimed the unofficial helicopter speed record from Sikorsky's X2, achieving 255 kt. in level flight and 263 kt. in a dive, and raising the question of what comes next for the European manufacturer's high-speed rotorcraft concept.

In flights at the Istres test base near Marseille, France, in early June the X3 experimental compound helicopter beat its previous top speed of 232 kt. set in May 2011. The new round of high-speed trials follows a lay-up during which the aircraft's gearbox was tweaked to operate at the full power level provided by its two Turbomeca RTM322 turboshafts.

Lo X3 verrà ritirato fra breve .... fra il rimpianto dei piloti collaudatori .... :pianto:

 

PARIS: Eurocopter test pilots bid farewell to experimental X3 rotorcraft ....

 

Although Eurocopter's test pilots think flying the X3 high-speed compound rotorcraft is "a dream come true", they will soon have to wake up to reality, as the manufacturer retires the experimental aircraft.

This year's Paris air show is likely to be the X3's final public appearance, before it is flown back to its home at Istres air base in the south of France on Monday, where it will enter retirement.
