Helicopter Group Build event

Post by Indian Bison on Thu Mar 15, 2012 11:43 am

Event description

This group build is for Helicopters of all eras, any civilan/military, any country of manufacture and user country, Scratchbuild or Kits models and any scale.



Event Start Date: 1st April 2012

Event End Date: 30th June 2012




More about helicopters
The word helicopter is adapted from the French hélicoptère, coined by Gustave de Ponton d'Amecourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) = "twisted, curved" and pteron (πτερόν) = "wing".

History of Helicopters
Helicopters were developed and built during the first half-century of flight, with the Focke-Wulf Fw 61 being the first operational helicopter in 1936. Some helicopters reached limited production, but it was not until 1942 that a helicopter designed by Igor Sikorsky reached full-scale production.
Though most earlier designs used more than one main rotor, it was the single main rotor with antitorque tail rotor configuration of this design that would come to be recognized worldwide as the helicopter.

Use of Helicopters
Due to the operating characteristics of the helicopter—its ability to takeoff and land vertically, and to hover for extended periods of time, as well as the aircraft's handling properties under low airspeed conditions—it has been chosen to conduct tasks that were previously not possible with other aircraft, or were time- or work-intensive to accomplish on the ground. Today, helicopter uses include transportation, construction, firefighting, search and rescue, and military uses.


Guidelines & Rules for the group build
- Scale - Any Scale
- Any type, make, use helicopter is permitted. Scratchbuilds or Kit made models are both allowed.
- Pictures of your build progress should be posted, if possible. This will help rookies and new members to understand the process of building the helicopter
