when the military needs to do some heavy lifting they call in the Marines and they're ch-53e Super Stallion it is a heavy lift helicopter ch-53 echo Super Stallion it's the largest helicopter in the military it Dwarfs some of its flashy ER cousins the blackhawk weighs just over ten and a half thousand pounds and stands 16 feet 10 inches high the Apache weighs in at nearly 11 and a half thousand pounds and stands 12 feet 7 inches high but the ch-53 weighs over 33,000 pounds and towers nearly three stories high at 28 feet not only is the ch-53 the largest helicopter in the military it's also the strongest the Super Stallion can carry internal loads of up to 20,000 pounds in the cargo hold or external loads at 32,000 pounds on the underneath the aircraft it can carry everything from armed troops to armored vehicles well the primary mission of the helicopters assault support carrying troops and equipment around the theater or wherever we're operating at to make sure that they get the supplies they need the equipment the ammunition and basically moving Marines around to complete these missions it takes two pilots and three crew chiefs who were responsible for loading up the inside we call it beans band-aids and bullets we can take anything in the back we're hooking up external loads underneath it's either a single-point lift or a dual point lift dual points are usually for longer or wider loads so that you know you can keep the load from spinning the seven rotor blades that sit on top of this metal monster are the reason the Super Stallion can carry so much weight they're so strong that the blades create downward winds in excess of 85 miles an hour we're up on the rotor head on the ch-53 echo and from here I was about 400 pounds put things in perspective there's seven of them that adds up to 2800 pounds 2,800 pounds can lift 70 3,500 pounds the mechanical muscles that move these blades come in the form of three GE engines that produce 12,000 horsepower we're not worried about how much power we have to pull to make a turn or climb or descend we've got it there at our fingertips when you're operating in environments where it's very difficult to travel over roads especially in the environment we've seen over the last six years where IEDs explosive devices roadside bombs become a major issue we're able to move a lot of equipment over the air without that threat to worry about nevertheless in these environments there's the real threat of being shut down if the worst happens and the engines failed ch-53 pilots rely on an aerodynamic phenomenon common to all helicopters called autorotation as the helicopter Falls the upward flow of air through the rotor provides enough force to keep the blades turning much like a pinwheel the pilot will lower the collective decreasing the angle of the blades this creates just enough lift to slow the descent of the helicopter and in ideal conditions allows the pilot to land safely [Applause] helicopters our skies are full of them unlike airplanes they offer the unique ability to fly in any direction or just hover in one spot and when this ability is combined with lethal firepower you get the ah-64d Apache Longbow the deadliest helicopter in the world at the US Army's Fort Rucker in Alabama they trained pilots to fly this bird of prey state64 day it's primarily an attack helicopter or a gunship as we call it primary missions to attack and what it does is it actually goes to where the tracers are coming from and actually engages the enemy that are engaging our friendly forces on the ground with the top speed of 182 miles per hour the advance gets there fast ready to unload an array of deadly fire these are the 19 shot rocket pods inside each we can fit 19 to point 7 5 inch folding fin aerial rockets they come in multiple configuration on the inboard pylon at the hellfire missile rack these are laser guided anti-tank missiles the Apache can be configured to hold multiple rocket pods or missile racks depending on the mission the last of the ah-64 swept ins is located right underneath the cockpit yes most impatient pilots this is their favorite weapons system on the aircraft this is a 30 millimeter chain cannon carrying up to 1,200 rounds of ammunition the chain cannon can fire 600 to 650 anti-personnel rounds a minute they explode on impact I can punch through trucks and even light armored vehicles to control the cannon the pilot uses a monocular eyepiece attached to the helmet that displays targeting information this connects to the chain cannon and automatically aims with a pilot is looking sensors track the movement and direction of the pilots helmet and direct the cannon where to point so if I happen to look at a target left right up and down this gun will move left and right up and down and follow it all you got to do is pull the trigger the Apache is also equipped with state-of-the-art sensors located on top of the rotor and on the bottom of the nose that allow pilots to see any enemies that can see them the part on top of that is a new site for the longbow radar it's the fire control radar system we can look out with a millimeter wave radar look for tanks in the open get all that data to our computers that'll transfer to a firing solution night combat presents few problems for the Apache Longbow this is the target acquisition and designating system also known as the Tad's it's on the bottom side of this turret we have a knight system right here which is forward-looking infra-red uses different temperatures and heat to detect targets this side is the de TV side for de television also has a laser rangefinder and designator for designating targets for laser-guided munitions the top here is the pilot night-vision sensor that's purely for flying at nighttime these sensors allow the Apache pilots to see everything even who is friend and who is foe we don't indiscriminately just shoot at people for this aircraft because of its digital capability we can zero in on just those people that are doing bad things the Apaches extremely felony also makes it a threat deterrent the mere presence of the Apache in the sky is often enough to dissuade the enemy from attacking friendly ground forces sometimes all it takes is for us to show up in the enemy stop shooting and they disappear well some Fort Rucker recruits are learning to master the deadly art of flying an Apache others are learning to fly the uh-60m blackhawk helicopter unlike the Apache it's designed for the specific purpose of attack the Blackhawk serves a multi-purpose role this is a uh-60 mic model Blackhawk and the uh-60 is a utility helicopter the UA 60 is probably one of the most versatile aircraft in the army and it can condition from ranges of Air Assault operations in combat which we can take fully loaded combat soldiers in air assault missions onto the battlefield and then we can turn around and pick up logistical supplies from Swing loading water pallets or MRE pallets or ammunition to help resupply soldiers we can do medevac missions which is picking up casualties on the battlefield delivering to the medical treatment facilities which is drastically increase the survivability on the battlefield number one and number two battery battery utilities best circuit breakers we have the Blackhawk helicopter crew who includes two pilots to fly it the pilots must use both hands and feet the helicopter superior maneuverability comes with complexity key to understanding how to fly a black hawk or any helicopter starts at the hub the hub is a central portion of the rotor system it's the part where all four rotor blades hook together the hub or rotor disk tilts to give the helicopter directional flight and is controlled by the cyclic this is the cyclic this provides us directional control either at a hover or in a in a cruise flight mode with a cyclic I'm actually tilting the rotor disc in the direction of that I'm pushing the cyclic so therefore if I'm at a hover and I move the cyclic to the right then the aircraft rotor disk is going to tilt to the right and I'm going to drift to the right if I push the cyclic forward the rotor system is going to tilt forward the aircraft is going to go into the descent and I look outside in the houses on the ground are actually getting bigger because I'm getting closer to the ground to control the lift or thrust of the helicopter the pilot uses the collective they flight control that I have in my left hand here is all the collective and it's called the collective because it collectively puts blade pitch angle into awful rotor blades at the same time the more pitch I want in the rotor blade the higher up pull the collective the pitch angle determines how fast the helicopter will lift off the ground in a hover or how fast it will fly in flight a zero angle will produce zero lift as the pitch increases the blades will push more air downward resulting in greater lift once in the air the pilot pushes the cyclic forward to start the helicopter in a forward direction as the pilot flies the aircraft he uses the tail rotor to keep the nose of the helicopter pointing forward the purpose of that terror auditor is to provide thrust in the opposite direction of the main rotor turning so that we can maintain our directional flight since the main rotor system turns counterclockwise there's an equal and opposite reaction that forces the fuselage clockwise tail rotor counters now it works the same way as the main rotor in that its blades increase pitch to gain rust to maintain a pitch that will keep the helicopter moving forward the pilot uses his feet to control the tail rotor if I push left pedal then that causes the nose of helicopter to turn left and then I use counter pressure on the opposite pedal to stop that motion the Blackhawk has two crew chiefs who are responsible for everything that happens from the cockpit back we have two crew members who sit in the back of the aircraft and they're predominantly crew chiefs and door Gunners and they assist with the loading and unloading in the aircraft where utility helicopter said we want to get in and get out and the door guns are predominantly there to assist in this oppression the enemy and provide area covers the uh-60m Black Hawk helicopter is the successor the old uh-1 Huey from the Vietnam War the Huey's became the workhorses of the military and much like the Black Hawks spilled many different bowls they evacuated wounded soldiers transported troops drop supplies and were even used as gunships while the three pilots flew using only visual references on the ground at maps Black Hawk pilots fly with state-of-the-art instruments this aircraft really takes the technology we have in the civilian sector and moves army aviation of the 21st century it really does two things it increases our situational awareness so that when we have the moving map displays it's very easy for an aviator to know where he's at and what's going on about field whether it's an enemy situation that's graphically depicted or the GPS technology of knowing his exact location at all times along with modern navigation systems the Blackhawk incorporates an onboard autopilot system known as a flight director it allows the helicopter to fly itself we actually control the airspeed altitude heading or course make the aircraft fly a flight plan with the flight director and never touch the conventional flight controls that reduces the pilot workload and allows the pilot to focus his attention in other areas these Blackhawks are used for many different operations and even do a little light lifting but when the military needs to do some heavy lifting they call in the Marines and they're ch-53e Super Stallion it is a heavy lift helicopter ch-53 echo Super Stallion it's the largest helicopter in the military it Dwarfs some of its flashier cousins the blackhawk weighs just over ten and a half thousand pounds and stands 16 feet 10 inches high the Apache weighs in at nearly 11 and a half thousand pounds and stands 12 feet 7 inches high but the ch-53 weighs over 33,000 pounds and towers nearly three stories high at 28 feet not only is the ch-53 the largest helicopter in the military it's also the strongest the Super Stallion can carry internal loads of up to 20,000 pounds in the cargo hold or external loads at 32,000 pounds on the underneath the aircraft it can carry everything from armed troops to armored vehicles well the primary mission of the

upward flow of air through the rotor provides enough force to keep the blades turning much like a pinwheel the pilot will lower the collective decreasing the angle of the blades this creates just enough lift to slow the descent of the helicopter and in ideal conditions allows the pilot to land safely the problem with this aircraft is it's very heavy it falls like a rock if the engines are out and you if you give that one shot it's going to be a hard landing no matter what you do well the super stallion carries the heaviest loads and the Apache can rain death under thousands other helicopters save thousands thanks in part to their unique capabilities at nearly 125,000 pounds the largest helicopter ever built was the Russian made mil v-12 on August 6 1969 the v12 set a record by lifting eighty eight thousand six hundred and thirty-six pounds helicopters will return on modern marvels whether a black hawk or an Apache Super Stallion or a civilian model all helicopters have an aerodynamic versatility unmatched by any other aircraft they can go up down sideways backwards and forwards but it's the helicopters ability to hover over a sinking ship or a survivor floating in the ocean that makes it an essential rescue instrument to the men and women of the u.s. Coast Guard and it's this capability that sets it apart from the planes and boats the Coast Guard uses in conjunction with Ala copter the helicopter allows the Coast Guard to do the rescue part of search and rescue we could always go find somebody with with some other kind of asset but the helicopters really what lets us go out get somebody and bring them home at the US Coast Guard aviation training center in Mobile Alabama pilots and crews learn to fly and operate one of the most technologically advanced helicopters in the fleet the mh-60 Jayhawk it's a variant of the Navy's sh-60 seahawk with several key modifications that allow it to fly in extreme weather to perform water rescues it's a very safe aircraft I know we can go out in any kind of weather do any kind of mission these helicopters are made to take off and fly in winds that can exceed 100 miles per hour flying in a hurricane can be scary but doing it at night can be even scarier we've got a dark and stormy night you really have to rely on all the capabilities of the helicopter to a certain extent it's nighttime over the ocean if there's no illumination out there whatsoever it's like flying in a closet pilots must rely on the helicopters GPS and infrared systems to show them where they are and how close they are to surging waves the typical Jayhawk crew consists of two pilots a rescue swimmer and a flight mechanic that operates the hoist during a rescue and maintains the rear cabin during operations the Jayhawk conducts a number of missions including security patrols and disaster relief but it's primarily responsible for search and rescue missions Muhtar marbles joined this training exercise in the Gulf of Mexico after the command center receives a distress call it dispatches a rescue helicopter it will then either give the helicopter exact coordinates of a ship in danger or its last-known coordinates myself as a pilot is to get the aircraft on scene once we show up on seeing the avionics system in a glass cockpit here in this new helicopter will actually fly the search pattern for me and so it gives me the ability to use my night-vision goggles to look out the window and actually search for the survivor or the subject also that we might be looking for once the crew spots the distress chip or floating survivor the rescue swimmer gets the call first thing though happen is they'll survey the scene if the conditions are you know met in the swimmer will freefall what's the summer free Falls they'll go down to the victim and based upon their evaluation they'll give hand signals to the flight mech unlike its military counterpart the Jayhawk is equipped with another modification a hoist mounted on the right side of the aircraft to aid in survivor rescues the Coast Guard's Jayhawk also lets the flight mechanic fine-tune the rescue this aircraft has the capability that if I need to I can control from the back small movements either left right forward or aft at this point the flight mechanic takes control of the operation to bring the survivor onboard the helicopter I'm gonna hook the hoist hook to the basket and then I'm going to send it out the door and I'm gonna be advising the pilot as its going down as to whether it's half way down and holding five feet above the water the pilots gonna tell me to direct him to that person and I will give commands as far as increments and feet where to go once we get to that person I'm going to set the basket in the water I'm going to advise the Pilar that they're in and ready for pickup at that point I will hoist the basket they'll be on their way up when they get to the door I'll bring them inside the helicopter the flight mechanic will then send the basket back down to retrieve the swimmer Coast Guard crews are responsible for hundreds of miles of ocean so fuel can be a major consideration page 60 Jayhawk helicopter maximum load of fields just over six thousand pounds with six thousand pounds of fuel you can probably plan on flying for about five and a half hours we can go 300 miles offshore remain on scene for 30 minutes and return back to where we started sometimes their missions aren't far out at sea but on land when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005 the Coast Guard helicopter crews got the call those people that were trapped in their flooded houses so we immediately went into a poisoning situation when we start thinking people up off the roof which of the first people we saw put the basket down they find in the basket got him in the aircraft and then we took them to the nearest safe place that they weren't really we unloaded them went right back to the neighborhood we got him from the witch to the next town she's down the line we did this all night until daylight and in one day we would pick up over a hundred people and and I did that for first four days straight over New Orleans the Coast Guard led the way his military and civilian helicopters saved thousands of lives the US Coast Guard effectively uses helicopters to save people from water but one helicopter saves people with water it's called the Erickson air grant and with this unique dragonfly appearance it's never mistaken for any other helicopter the air crane is built for one thing heavy lifting it has two turbine engines that provide 9,000 horsepower to the shaft allowing the 19 thousand five hundred pound helicopter to carry an additional 20,000 pounds this capability makes the air-crane a perfect tool for fighting large forest and brush fires the air-crane can be fitted with a two thousand six hundred and fifty gallon tank that can be filled with a suctioning device called a ram scoop hydrofoil it can fill the tank in less than 40 seconds this tank empties over a two hundred and sixty five thousand square foot area and can extinguish fires that might take ground crews precious powers to control and put out while the heavy-lifting Erickson air-crane may dominate our construction sites and fire lines another much smaller much less expensive helicopter dominates the skies above our cities in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina Coast Guardsmen rescued more than 33,000 500 people it was the largest rescue machine in u.s. Coast Guard history helicopters will return on modern marvels this is the helicopter that dominated the civilian market for nearly four decades it's called the Bell Jet Ranger bell helicopter it was the first helicopters that really was successful in the commercial market and ones that you see on TV for instance the old movies born in 1967 it soon became a favorite of police departments news stations and wealthy businessmen all over the world but these jet turbine driven helicopters came with a high price tag by 1971 that cost nearly a hundred and fifteen thousand dollars that's the equivalent of nearly six hundred thousand dollars today expell engineer frank robinson decided he could make a helicopter that would be cheaper to fly and maintain in 1979 robinson helicopters started to manufacture the two-seat r22 selling them for the same price as a high-end luxury car about $40,000 they still make the r22 today Robinson began selling the r44 a four-seat version in 1992 for $235,000 while bells jet helicopters still fill a role for many companies in 1988 Robinson's helicopters first sold more than Bell and they've done so every year since Robinson started with a cheaper more efficient engine the r22 model uses a four cylinder piston engine instead of a jet turbine while the larger r44 uses a six cylinder engine that is by far the most practical type of engine to use in a small light helicopter like ours because it burns a lot less fuel than a turbine though less powerful than turbine engines they still push the r22 up to a top speed of 110 miles per hour and the r44 to a top speed of 135 miles per hour giving them both a range of over 350 miles along with an economical engine Robinson streamlined the design of his helicopters well we've kept the design very simple very lightweight and yet very very reliable the features of our helicopters are designed for efficiency for speed to keep the noise level down and but you probably recognize if you see when flying over it shows you that it's one of ours it has a tall mast the rotor is up considerably higher than the rest of the fuselage and we do that because it allows us to use a large diameter rotor which is more efficient than a smaller diameter rotor the larger mast allows the blades to extend over the after rotor but before they fly they all start out as nuts and bolts and sheet metal the raw materials come in one door and they end up going out another door is a finished flying helicopter nearly every part of every Robinson helicopter is made in-house entirely built by hand and that process starts with cutting and shaping the metal into specific sizes to be sent to the sub assemblies this is where all the parts are constructed before being sent to final assembly here parts like the tail loom rotor blades cabin and landing skills are assembled into a complete helicopter shell here on down the assembly line getting its electrical harness installed it gearbox put in engine is after the helicopter was completely assembled it's painted flight tested and ready for the customer to fly at home Robinson simple design allowed the company to produce nearly 900 helicopters in 2008 at its manufacturing facility in Torrance California no helicopter manufacturer had ever produced that many in a single year of course they cost a little more now we are twenty two sells for two hundred and forty three thousand dollars and the r44 for nearly four hundred thousand one agency that realizes the value of a Robinson helicopter is the El Monte California Police Department they maintain a fleet of three r44 helicopters that have been converted for police use you have a high candle power searchlight which is used to illuminate ground person at night we also have FLIR which is the forward-looking infrared which enables the observer to see heat signatures on the ground at night and even during the day we also have a different radio package which allows us to talk to a wide variety of police agencies within the Los Angeles County and there's other equipment such as LoJack which is a vehicle locating device even with these extra hat odds Robinson helicopters operate for a third of the cost of larger more expensive police helicopters that allows us to have three and allows us to stay in business and do what we do best and that's providing a safe aerial platform and a safe environment for the citizens we serve having that helicopter in the sky is equivalent to having anywhere from five to eight ground officers in the area and also gives the police a significant advantage the police pilot relies on ground communication to get the helicopter into the right position once he locates the fleeing suspect the co-pilot or tactical flight officer directs the ground forces you will also monitor the FLIR system and search light at night until the suspect is apprehended regardless of how much time and effort is put forth to trying to escape from the police officers they already know that the helicopter is there they're gonna go to jail eventually you can run but you're only gonna go to jail tired the police departments aren't the only organizations taking advantage of Robinson helicopters low costs we have other versions of that same basic helicopter which are used for TV broadcasts so the TV stations can buy that particular model and all the equipment for their gyro-stabilized cameras and microwave transmissions are all built right into the these helicopters end up flying for industries all over the world about 70% of all the helicopters that we manufacture are exported exported all over the world and some of our most active markets right now are places like South Africa Australia New Zealand and of course all of the European countries the Robinson fills an important niche in an economically cautious world but if you've got the money you might prefer one of these tricked-out choppers in 2000 Jennifer Murray became the first woman pilot to circumnavigate the earth in a helicopter she did it in a Robinson r44 helicopters will return on modern marvels helicopters are ready just for police forces in the military some individuals and corporations like the luxury of commuting as the crow flies for that many people turn to bail helicopters we offer any helicopter for any need whether that's corporate or VIP travel to infer on the golf course and the boardroom any of our products in our line currently can suit any of those needs once you decide on a helicopter Edwards and associates is Bell's completion house of choice Edwards and associates takes a bell helicopter like this right off the line and customizes it from the inside out when a customer wants to buy an aircraft the first thing we need to know is what kind of configuration do they need is if corporate is it utility VIP just what type of equipment do they need we figure out what would best suit their mission requirements and then we build the aircraft from that proposal and that can be costly up to two million dollars just for customizing it starts with an eight hundred mile flight from bells manufacturing plant using only a basic instrument battle the helicopters make their way from Maribelle Canada boot facility in Piney Flats Tennessee this is what we start with when we begin our completion it's what we call a green aircraft it has no avionics nothing installed just a bare-bones aircraft Edwards disassembles the helicopter to start the customizing process the helicopter then goes into the completions hangar where workers install the wiring and flight instruments workers run wiring through the helicopter to connect the instrument panel in the front to the computer systems that control it placed in a rear compartment after we finished the installation of the avionics and all the wiring and we've buttoned up all the panels this is when we start to install the interior customizing the interior starts with a plastic trim kit that will cover any wiring or equipment that was previously installed next comes carpet and if you don't want a solid color we can have something such as this or this all we got to do is get your design that you want have a computer rendering done of it and sent to the carpet company where they can manufacture it whatever your logo is however you want it to look the seat covers come with the same options once the customers chosen the colors and materials for the seats they're handmade and installed the next step is plating we have several examples here some plating here's some door trim this goes around where you open the door there's hundreds of colors of plating different styles of brushed aluminum brushed gold whatever you would like to have we put reclining seats in that cabinet stuff where they can talk on the phone or work on their laptop that monitors it actually would rise up the sky is the limit anything you want to do but they aren't finished yet the last step is the paint and this is where the customer can really make the helicopter his or her home in just four months the workers at Edwards and associates take a helicopter straight off a line and turn it into a hovering luxury suite oh those the can't afford and Edwards conversion there still hope rotorway international in Chandler Arizona manufactures experimental helicopter kits that deliver to your door an experimental helicopter is a helicopter that is within easy reach of anybody to purchase and it allows them to build a helicopter themselves it also allows them to invest their time and save exponential dollars rotor ways to seat a 600 Talon is just over a hundred thousand dollars some assembly required it can fly as fast as a hundred miles per hour it can reach a ceiling height of approximately 8,000 to 10,000 feet and it is designed to give everyone the satisfaction of flying in a helicopter net we think that anybody can build this helicopter rotor weight rise to make it easy on the garage mechanic they assemble some of the more complex components for the customer including the drive assembly tailed and most importantly the engine we will send you a proven dyno tested ready to install engine for your helicopter one man that knows all about building a rotorway helicopter is played instructor Chris stretchin was building his third a600 talon that is hangar in Van Nuys California it's a very simple process they do most of the difficult stuff and it's this forty nine percent fifty one percent rule the forty nine percent that they do is all the difficult stuff and then out of fifty one is you just putting both together in brackets and actually putting it together it's almost like you just need your normal tools that you have in your back yard that's pretty much all you need here at the factory we make the parts card is where we take each part that you need put it on the parts card laminated put it in your crate and you're good to go each parts card has a specific label on them with on your blueprints explain to you exactly where each part needs to go what I really liked is rather than getting a box of bolts that kind of shrink wrap them onto the card each bolt with a number exactly where it goes as a first-time builder we supply you with construction manuals and videos which take you step-by-step through each phase then it's up to the customer first step order stage one of four shipments of crates the customer then decides when to receive the next shipment when you are ready for Stage two of your helicopter kit it will include some very high-end components which are the drive and main drive systems and the body the main drive system is a very intricate part of the helicopter and that is the second step you will take the drive assembly is what links the engine to the rotor blades the helicopter begins to take shape at this stage once you receive group three that will include your tail rotor system some of your main drive pulleys your oil system and your engine cooling system for will include your engine your rotor blades and your ignition system once you receive this final stage you will pretty much be able to complete your helicopter rotor way says the average builder takes 400 to 650 hours to complete his helicopter rotor weigh a monitors each stage we will not allow you to go to the next stage of your build until we feel confident that you've reached the goal or accomplished what we are asking you to accomplish before the next stage is taken on once the helicopter is completely built it still can't be flown the customer must contact a local FAA representative and have them look over the helicopter they will take you through a sign-off procedure where they will inspect your helicopter be sure it's built correctly finally it's given an airworthiness certificate then the owner is free to fly is brand new helicopter most people don't realize that for the price of a good Corvette and I can have a helicopter they can fly pretty much anywhere why even dry some over you can fly so perhaps you too will be flying a helicopter soon but don't try this for your close-ups you'll want one of these rode away is the oldest helicopter kit company in the world in 1967 it's scorpion model became the first kit helicopter on the market helicopters will return on modern marvels today not all helicopters have a pilot inside take the fire scout from Norfolk Grumman it's linked to a ground control facility that will give it coordinates once program it can fly to assigned area perform its mission and return home it can even autonomously take off from and land on a moving aircraft carrier northrop grumman modified a full-size oyster 3:33 to create the fire scout it has a top speed of a hundred and forty five miles per hour although the original intent was to use the fire scout to provide reconnaissance it can be outfitted with rocket launchers and laser guided missiles the fire scout is certainly a successful pilotless helicopter but in the future perhaps pilotless helicopters will look and behave more like this one it's called the dragon flyer x6 it's an intelligent cell flying helicopter that changes all the rules of our helicopter flies that's called the dragon flyer x6 it's a six rotor Beetle helicopter that we designed in our factory dragonfly innovations in Saskatoon Canada develop the x6 to be a new breed of helicopter winning popular Sciences best of what's new award in the aviation and space category in 2008 it can be controlled by the computer or via a pilot on the ground the secret behind this high-tech flyer is the carefully calibrated computer calculates every move the dragon flyer makes it's virtually a flying computer there is very complicated software on board to make it fly very stable that typical helicopters don't have flying on full-size helicopter it's like balancing a ball on a needle know this helicopter is unique in that it senses acceleration and angles and it always wants to keep level so right now we have full control of the helicopter we have yaw which is this movement we have pitch forward pitch backward and roll left and roll right so what I'm gonna do here is I'm going to take these sticks and smash them around and you'll notice how that the helicopter always levels itself if you ever get confused or in trouble let go of the stick the way the dragon flower uses it six rotors to move is revolutionary the helicopter changes direction by speeding and slowing up the RPM of the individual motors so if you wanted to go board you would speed up their rear motors to push the helicopter port to your the helicopter right you would speed up all the top motors and slow down all the bottom motors on the contrary to your left you would speed up the bottom motors and slow down the top so just the varying rpm of the individual motors will make this helicopter go in a different direction a typical helicopter uses the pitch of the rotor blades to increase speed this helicopter has a fixed pitch speed is controlled by simply increasing the power of the motors this smart helicopter can make anyone a pilot in a matter of hours it's even outfitted with safety features that allow it to auto land if anything goes wrong the Dragon player was designed to record still and

  1. The can use magnet locks to hold an object that once connected has a bolt that goes through it to locked each together just in case the magnet fails. It would pull the straps into place because the magnets want to connect or drawn to each other. This way you do not need a person on the ground to grab an object. The magnets on the straps pulls it into place.

  2. If you place a jet engine that can focus thrust like a Harrier jet to help lift off faster and go faster in the air. The blades can come together and line up like a wing then separate again to go back to helicopter mode.

  3. That's the Jolly Green Giant, It's just not Green anymore. Bad to the bone. This monster was around in the sixty's. there was a man in the side door they always waved at us in salt lake city. This is were the 151 Air refueling wing is we love them and the men. Heck we seven to nine years old The F-4 Phantoms flew so low you could see them. Also breaking the sound Barrier until they had to Quit they were breaking windows all the time Lol.

  4. Love the blackhawk bs. we don't just shoot at anybody.. ?? what about reuters reporters? 0.o. The lethality of the weapon is conversant with the mentality of the operater. moron in charge? useless weapon.

  5. Bismillah, Science Technology, manpower, lets tell the world to spend much more on the hard working, elderly seniors, OUR MIGRANT workforce from around the GLOBE IN  our country, better than 8 dollars per hours, WITH EDUCATION AND MEDICAL FACILITIES FOR THE WOMEN CHILDREN, enjoy love, live, life, sukhran, khuda hafiz, TO. ON. CAD.

  6. 15:10 min the guy says "We don't indescriminantly shoot at people with this aircraft".

    Maybe they should roll out the Apache to all their pilots including fixed wing . Maybe then they wouldn't kill and injure British troops in Blue on Blue fuck ups…………..

    Fucking cowboy Americans killed a friend of mine along with 8 of his comrades in the first Gulf war. A10 cowboy pilots who shouldn't be in control of a push bike let alone a A10 wharthog. God Bless you Stephen Satchell.

    Its one thing claiming to be the best but its not the same as being the best.

  7. I'm taking (serious) issue with the flight control description … if it were just a matter of tilting the rotor disc .. we would have had viable helicopter flight decades earlier. Centuries perhaps! : )

    Lateral directional control is affected through "dynamic" blade-pitch adjustment. Controlled flight mandates (that) a blade rotate about it's longitudinal axis as that axis points in the desired direction. This DECREASES lift in the desired direction and collectively there is net-thrust in that direction. Refer to "swash plate" descriptions. Now you're good to go! : )

  8. Trouble with the Yanks (and others) is that they only dare use them against backward opposition as a a simple, very cheap, easily hidden ground to air missile would bring them down. Much the same as one missile could blow an expensive aircraft carrier to "kingdom come"!
