A question or two to the more mech minded..........I like the idea of the Kamov style twin rotor n H tail...my question's are.......Would the rotors be shorter in length and how many blades on each...........I know this is whiffing but I would like it to be plausible.......many thanks for any help.....H

Stictly as a first approximation, I'd go with three blades per rotor and roughly two-thirds the "stock" length.  If you feel it approrpriate, a modest increase in blade chord, on both sides of the spar connecting it to the hub, would likely work well.

A succinct summary, 'cept not too short.  I wouldn't shorten them beyond two-thirds the length of the "stock" blades and would probably stop at three-quarters the stock length to be on the safe side.

I'm not sure the additional vertical stabilizers would be necessary, though you would have to modify the main vertical to lose the original fairing for the tail rotor.  The extra verticals would look interesting in Ka-50 style on the main tail though.

Folks,

The V-24D was supposed to represent a trials bird.  In other words, the tilting pods would be simply attacked with something simple and the rotors removed.  I will try to do a front view shortly to explain better.  For a operational version, I would do something neater.

For the sheer hell of it! :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I think it needs pontoons on the wingtips as well, or else it's going to be unbalanced really.

It's a rather interesting idea, really, if you think about it.  Not sure what purpose it would serve.  Could use the 24P's 30mm side-mount though.

G'day AoO,

I'd have to concur with the SA-7 idea.  It seems the most logical store to be there given it's small dimensions and general shape.

Had a look webwise thru a few English language sites and found nothing mentioning it.  Perhaps if we have any Russian speakers in the crew, they might be able to shed more light as I'm sure Cryllic based pages would have to mention something.

Regards,

Mav
