The rotor of a gyrocopter in flight is powered only by airstream not by engine. «R-EVOLUTION» scores with a clever wing concept to increase cruising speed by supporting the «slowing» rotor. The connections on the wing tips reduce wake turbulence, what has a positive aerodynamical effect. Based on a special steering construction, this gyrocopter is able to start and land vertically. But wings and flight principle make it faster, less expensive and therefore more efficient for certain niches than a helicopter, while it enters emerging markets successfully. Finally, the concise and distinctive shape helps to develop an independent prototype.
