Eurocopter

I want one!

Quote:
Eurocopter is set to debut its brand new X3 rotorcraft at the Paris air show next week.

The new Eurocopter prototype combines the versatility of a helicopter, by way of vertical take-off and landing, with the higher speed of a plane.

Its debut will be the first time the aircraft is seen flying in public.

The BBC's Jorn Madslien got a preview of the aircraft and spoke to Eurocopter's chief technology officer Jean-Michel Billig who says the X3 rotorcraft is a "game changer".

Re: Eurocopter

No tail rotor which makes it interesting, the 2 forward facing rotors must be geared to compensate for that, stopping the copter from spinning wildly.

Looks cool...I'll chip in Azz, as long as you do the early morning school run after dropping me off at work
