aw1


A single-seat open-frame helicopter, Doug Schwochert's adaptation of the Adams-Wilson design included a re-designed main and tailrotor-swash plate and main frame. Plans include over 100 pages of CAD drawings and photos. The rotor blades are from A-B Helicopter, and are all aluminum extruded spar with full length aluminum skins bonded and riveted.

The A/W 95 features of true helicopter vertical take-off & landing, and forward, backward, sideward & hover flight, with standard helicopter-type control system.
