Through the testing phases, and initial release at IRCHA 2016 in
Muncie, IN, pilots have reported improved cyclic response, increased
collective authority, and a bump up in flight time between 10-20%
depending on a pilots final set up. Flight performance comments have
been received as "Incredibly stable, yet quicker cyclic rates compared
to my previous blades", and "Overall there seemed to be less loading on
the rotor head all around with collective and cyclic inputs, or both
inputs at once with demanding maneuvers".
Form & Function; Perfect Harmony
Every single millimeter of the VTX Rotor blade is aerodynamically
data driven to perform for all aspects of helicopter flight. During
development the VTX team had zero preconceived notions of what a perfect
rotor blade would or would not look like. Aerodynamics held the first
and last concepts of design to bring this rotorblade to fruition.
