10 Most Bizarre Helicopters Ever Made


most bizarre helicopters ever made number to HC one whoever was willing to test this one man helicopter should have been given a medal for the US Army Florida helicopters that would allow soldiers to fly around the battlefield and so the dulac Nur hc1 was built the rotor system was below the small platform where the pilot stood yeah that’s right the pilot was standing above the helicopters blades and if this doesn’t sound crazy enough there was no sort of safety protection between the pilot and the blades meaning any misstep or slip would most certainly be fatal luckily no test of this crazy aircraft ended pay Italy and the Army was actually interested in the project changes and tactics made the craft Obsolete and the project was eventually dropped number 9, 56 if I can’t work to ever get in the market of selling helicopters the cam off Ka 56 would be design by the Soviets who were looking for Effective personal helicopters that were light and weight this aircraft could be assembled in 10 minutes and almost all of its parts could be folded and stored in a cylindrical container that was only 20 inches in diameter theoretically it could have been inside torpedo tubes and sent to operatives on beaches are near Water it is quite a concept that regretfully never proceeded Beyond ground testing due to the fact that a suitable engine could not be found for the helicopter number 8 Hughes Seventeen at the time that this huge helicopter was Bill it was the largest in the world with a gigantic 120 ft rotor system made in the early 1950s it represents the first attempt by Hughes aircraft company at designing a helicopter and just a production cost the company use junkyard parts from World War plans when it started testing the chopper it quickly became apparent that it might be laughing and Effectiveness it had an extremely limited range of 37 Mi and it even have trust issues it was also quite a scary site before take-off planes first from the jet engines on the rotors tips and the constant combustion made extremely noisy there even reports that I could be heard from 8 Miles Away the company tested it for 3 years before realizing it’s downfalls we’re not worth overcoming and they gave up on it number 7 mil V12 the Soviet Union built a lot of big things in their day so does not a surprise that they created the largest helicopter ever produce a record that has not been broken since the mil V12 First Flight in 1960 it weighs over 152000 pounds and has a tremendous wingspan of 220 ft the Soviet air force needed the helicopter that could effectively transport missiles and other similar loads the first hover test of the crap ended in a crash in 1960 besides this testing of the prototypes were very successful but by the time it was ready for full scale production the Soviets tactical changes in their plans and no longer needed with a V12 provided the prototypes received and sit in Russian Air Museum number 6 Omission number to Etienne Omission was an aviation pioneer and was one of the primary Adventures overly helicopters his first attempt at designing a helicopter Bill taken off the ground so he had to attach the hydrogen balloon to get it to a suitable test altitude while his second attempt looks strange by today’s helicopters design standards it was much more successful than his first attempt the machine had four engines driving multiple propellers and rotors every extremity had a rotor for Upward lip and the rest of the frame was covered in propeller blades all spinning in different directions to give the Kraft horizontal stability when tested the helicopter set the world record for longest endurance flight and both time and distance number five Sikorsky X2 this model was a result of Sikorsky wanting to build a speedy helicopter the X2 has two rotor blades that spin opposite of each other in a coop she’ll configuration but what is unique about its design is its Pusher propeller blade on the back it was put there instead of a tail rotor purely to make it faster everything about this helicopters design was done with speed in mind and in this sense the helicopter turned out to be a total so in September 2010 The x27 Unofficial record for top speed by a conventional helicopter reaching 253 not sore 291 miles per hour which has been broken well it was never meant for mass production these are being used in the Next Generation helicopter being built for the United States Army called the s79 Raider number for Boeing BV 347 this prototype was developed by the US Army various ideas for future heavy-lift helicopters the most obvious Oddity of this craft is an extra set of hydraulic Wings which were fully removable it also had a lengthen fuselage retractable landing gear unusually long rotor blades and a high app one extremely unique and amazing modification was a retractable Gondola that was fitted with in the helicopter fuselage the compartment was fitted with a set of flight controls and it could be lowered giving a third pilot the ability to fly the helicopter while facing towards the rear it actually tested quite well despite its quirks and accrued 734 flight hours from 1970 to 1972 despite this it never made it to production but the aircraft is still on display at Fort Rucker US Army Aviation Museum in Alabama number three Eurocopter X3 you can find the Eurocopter X3 at the top of the list of fastest helicopters in the world it achieve 255 knots or 293 miles per hour of level flight over France on June 2013 which unofficially set the speed record for helicopters it has been known to go as fast is 263 knots or a little over 302 miles per hour it is powered by two Rolls Royce engines that generate 2270 horsepower it is not the best looking helicopter in the world and it is unique in that it has three rotors one on the top of the craft and two pointing forward attach to squat Wings number to V-22 Osprey President Obama visited the UK in April of 2016 and some of his Ariel security detail caused a ripple of attention from our friends across the Atlantic not only as the president normally flanked by three Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopters but also 3B 22 which are a cross between a helicopter and a plane you can fly like a plane but can also have her like a helicopter pictures of the aircraft running test flights were taken and shared on social media days ahead of Obama’s visit to London the planes are very high-tech and cost nearly two hundred million dollars to build and is considered to be the most advanced vertical lift aircraft the number one the first be sure to subscribe for new videos every day number one Sikorsky X-Wing this experimental aircraft never officially got off which is a shame because it is one of the coolest helicopters you will ever see its design is a mix of an airplane and a helicopter and it looks a lot like the X-Wing Fighter from Star Wars the whole experiment started in the mid-1970s when renowned helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky begin testing new designs the s72 test of the possibility of combining the design of an airplane and a helicopter government was intrigued by these designs and started finding us-72 with the X-Wing modification in the 1980s the project budget balloon out of control causing the government to scrap it after only three test bites
These are the top 10 strangest helicopters ever created they have unusual features and some pretty unbelievable stories behind them

6. Oehmichen No.2
Etienne Oehmichen was an aviation pioneer and was one of the primary inventors of early helicopters. His first attempt at designing a helicopter failed to get off the ground, so he had to attach a hydrogen balloon to get it to a suitable test altitude. While his second attempt looked strange by today’s helicopter design standards, it was much more successful than his first attempt. To get some thrust the machine had four engines driving multiple propellers and rotors. Every extremity had a rotor for upward lift and the rest of the frame was covered in propeller blades all spinning in different directions to give the craft horizontal stability. When tested, the helicopter set the world record for longest endurance flight in both time and distance.

5. Sikorsky X2
This model was a result of Sikorsky wanting to build a speedy helicopter. The X2 has two rotor blades that spin opposite of each other in a co-axial configuration, but what is unique about its design is it’s pusher propeller blade on the back. It was put there instead of a tail rotor purely to make it faster. Everything about this helicopter’s design was done with speed in mind, and in this sense the helicopter turned out to be a total success. In September, 2010 the X2 set an unofficial record for top speed by a conventional helicopter, reaching 253 knots or 291 miles per hour, which has since been broken. While it was never meant for mass production its technologies are being used in a next generation helicopter being built for the United States Army called the S-79 Raider.

4. Boeing BV-347
This prototype was developed by the U.S. Army to test various ideas for future heavy lift helicopters. The most obvious oddity of this craft is its extra set of hydraulic wings, which were fully removable. It also had a lengthened fuselage, retractable landing gear, unusually long rotor blades and a high aft pylon. One extremely unique and amazing modification was a retractable gondola that was fitted within the helicopters fuselage. The compartment was fitted with a set of flight controls and it could be lowered, giving a third pilot the ability to fly the helicopter while facing towards the rear! It actually tested quite well despite its quirks and accrued 734 flight hours from 1970 to 1972. Despite this it never made it to production but the aircraft is still on display at Fort Rucker U.S. Army Aviation Museum in Alabama.

3. Eurocopter X3
You can find the Eurocopter X3 at the top of the list of fastest helicopters in the world. It achieved 255 knots or 293 miles per hour of level flight over France on June 7 2013, which unofficially set the speed record for helicopters and has been known to go as fast as 263 knots or a little over 302 miles per hour. It is powered by two Rolls Royce Engines that generate 2,270 horsepower each. It is not the best looking helicopter in the world and it is unique in that it has 3 rotors, one on the top of the craft and two pointing forward attached to squat wings.

2. V22 Osprey
President Obama visited the U.K. in April of 2016 and some of his aerial security detail caused a ripple of attention from our friends across the Atlantic. Not only is the president normally flanked by three Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopters but also three V22 Osprey’s, which are a cross between a helicopter and a plane. It can fly like a plane but can also hover like a helicopter. Pictures of the aircraft running test flights were taken and shared on social media days ahead of Obama’s visit to London. The planes are very high tech and cost nearly 200 million dollars to build and is considered to be the most advanced vertical-lift aircraft.

1. Sikorsky X-Wing
This experimental aircraft never officially got off the ground which is a shame because it is one of the coolest helicopter’s you will ever see. Its design is a mix of an airplane and a helicopter and it looks a lot light the X-wing fighter from Star Wars. The whole experiment started in the mid 1970’s when renowned helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky began testing new designs. The S-72 tested the possibility of combining the design of an airplane and a helicopter. The government was intrigued by these designs and started funding the S-72 with the X-wing modification in the 1980’s. The project’s budget quickly ballooned out of control, causing the government to scrap it after only three test flights.
