ELA 08 R-100


The main frame is made with stainless steel tubes and sheets cut with CNC laser machinery and welded by aeronautic welding in a TIG atmosphere. The main frame is designed and tested to support 5 Gs loads with maximum weight at takeoff. The rotor control system is duplicated to be able to pilot from both seats. Like the frame, it is made of stainless steel.


All of the gyro points are mounted on stainless steel ball bearings with ZZ protection. The two joysticks consist of a "top gun" type stick with rotor trim controls and radio button (ptt) controls. The rotor head consists of parts tooled with a CNC machine. The parts are made of stainless steel, high strength steel and 7075 T6 hard aluminium. The bolts used are ISO certified. The autogyro's cabin is manufactured in carbon fibre and epoxy resin composite materials.


The 08 model's cabin is equipped with two windscreens. The tail unit is manufactured in carbon fibre and epoxy resin. The tail unit's frame design has been tested to the limit by Spain's Civil Aviation Department and has shown its strength at speeds of up to 210 Km/hr.


The ELA rotor is manufactured in a combination of aluminium and fibreglass with epoxy resin. The blade can support traction loads of up to 26,000 Kg, whereas the top flight load does not exceed 6,500 Kg.


Standard Equipment for ELA 08 includes altímeter, airspeed, vertical speed, compass, engine and rotor rpm, cht, oil temperature, oil pressure, fuel pressure, trim position indicator, hour counter, "top gun" stick in front and back positions, mechanical prerotator, pneumatic rotor brake with parking system, pneumatic trim, back compartment glove box, wheel spats, landing light, 72 litre fuel tank, carbon fibre propeller, aluminium and carbon fibre rotor blades, carbon fibre cockpit, wheel spats and tail plane, front wheel cover, and stone guard.


Optional extras include egt, strobe light, manifold pressure, propeller spinner painted, rear instrumental panel with airspeed indicator, engine rpm, rotor rpm, altimeter, and fuel pressure.
