About Us

Brad Hawley’s Little Wing Autogiro

Engine:


Yamaha Genesis 130 FI

Prop:


Warp Drive, 72" diameter, three-blade, carbon fiber

Construction began:


2007

Build time:


Unknown

Remarks:


Update May 4, 2016:  Hang test and mast angle adjustment went very well. By transferring fuel and creating a max aft CG condition and max forward CG condition, the nose-down attitude difference was only 0.6 degrees, while hung by the main rotor blade bolt. By adjusting the mast angle, this 0.6 degree shift is now centered in the 10 to 13 degree, nose down, design range.
