The design of the Avimech DF1 DragonFly aircraft was started by American aircraft engineers in 2008. Encouraged by the idea of ​​creating small-size private aircraft, American aircraft builders have come to the conclusion that it is necessary to create a promising and inexpensive aircraft suitable for private operation, in particular as personal air assets. Thanks to the use of modern design tools, including computer graphics, aircraft builders succeeded in creating a highly efficient aircraft, the compact design of which proved to be not only very light and simple in terms of its assembly, but also met modern security requirements.

The helicopter model Avimech DF1 DragonFly in comparison with other aircraft of this type and class, has a high maneuverability and enough good handling, which is mainly provided and aircraft is quite a lot of popularity among direct customers.

The first test trials Avimech DF1 DragonFly model of ultra-light aircraft were carried out in the middle of 2010 years and due to the fact that the flight went very well, the project has already been approved for series production in a few months, which, according to 2015 year actively continued.

The design of single helicopter Avimech DF1 DragonFly has a frame basis, which, in spite of this factor which has a sufficiently high strength characteristics. Cabin in the aircraft Avimech DF1 DragonFly is generally absent - its role is performed by the pilot's seat and controls available here. For the same reasons, the helicopter model Avimech DF1 DragonFly is not adapted for the transport of any goods, which, however, and not considered aircraft manufacturers in the design phase of an aircraft.

The power plant ultra-light helicopter Avimech DF1 DragonFly consists of two aircraft engines brands Tecaeromex H2O2, each of which is capable of traction in 0,45 kN, which provides aircraft quite reasonable flight speed is up to 185 km \ h. (Maximum value), however, the use of rocket engines is more effective when flying at a speed of 75 km \ h. The maximum distance that can cross the limited distance in the helicopter 80 kilometers, which does not always satisfy the principles of potential customers and clients.

Your author of the article in his mind, write this ??? !!!
Here are the bottom from the site:

"...

The difference is caught, 45.88 kG and 15 kG ??? )))
