Breguet-Richet Helicopter No.2

 

BregRich-2-02

 

In 1908 the Breguet-Richet collaboration produced a No.2 Gyroplane, powered by a 55hp Renault engine and having two forward-tilting 2-blade rotors with a diameter of 7.85m and, in addition, fixed wings giving an extra 50sq.m of lifting surface.

On July 22, 1908, it rose vertically to the height of 4.5m and flew for a short period of time, apparently under control, but the machine was completely wrecked upon landing, but was rebuilt and flew again next spring.
 
It was later morphed into the No.2 bis.
