MoTIS BETA TESTERS FIRST TEST FLIGHT REPORT ON THE MoTIS VERTRON


MoTIS NEO CONCEPT AVIATION AT ITS FINEST-VERTRON

Flight test date: 1/24/2004- From X ROW to X ROW

The VERTRON was all set to fly on the 24th of January and the aircraft flight dynamics team had their fingers crossed for this one.. The aircraft uses two of the ROTON series VTOL engineered engines and this aircraft has max thrust potential to say the least.. The test pilot on this beta tester mission is William Leclair and he will be flying this beta test mission following the VEDA and ECATA tester standards and giving the aircraft a reality standardization value.

THE TAXI OUT

All concept aircraft prototypes should have the basic capacity to have a multiplicity of uses and the VERTRON has defiantly got this area covered. With a huge cargo bay area this aircraft can carry numerous types of payloads from mail , to small vehicles , all the way to military passenger loads. The VERTRON has to be able to operate through a verity of ranges , from the aircraft configuration this aircraft needs to be able to reach high speeds and high cruising altitudes in order to be economy-fuel efficient and from a VTOL configuration she needs to be able to handle slow flight and have the capacity to conduct ultra STOL maneuvers.

The VERTRON is seen here for the first time taxing from X ROW ...


THE FIRST TAKE OFF

We conducted the first test flight take off at a fairly high take of angle of attack. In the aircraft configuration mode she lifted off at a comfortable 98kts! The main reason for such slow lift of speeds are the large bore composite heli/prop blades. VTOL technology in it self will totally change the face of aviation and also alter the nature by will we build and construct airports in the near future..

At a high angle of attack this big yellow bird gets its tail feathers wet and soars into MoTIS flight history..


 THE CLIMB OUT

As the VERTRON climbs into the morning sky the captain on this flight  William Leclair sets up for a power climb up to what will be our shake down cruising altitude of 10,000 ft AGL

The climb out is executed in a standard power setting climb and the landing gear is fully retracted ...


THE AIRCRAFT TEST FLIGHT MODE

The VERTRON in the air, in aircraft mode is really a dream to operate, and due to the ability to place the aircraft into hybrid aircraft/ VTOL aircraft configurations , this aircraft will allow the pilot to fly as fast or as slow as he/she wants or needs to for the mission at hand.. 

The VERTRON drops her gear to conduct high drag climb tests and heads up to a cruise altitude of 10,000 AGL to get some cruise performance test data..

After all the high drag tests are conducted then this aircraft heads up flight level 28, 000 AGL to do some basic high altitude

With gear up and a full power climb started this aircraft becomes very awesome to pilot!!


THE TRANSITION APPROACH

The biggest challenge of this aircraft is transitioning the aircraft to VTOL configuration and this will take some pilots a few try's in getting use to. As of the result that this is a heavy aircraft and the fact that the CG range must be obeyed to so closely, this aircraft must be transitioned at the appropriate speeds so as not to lose control as the longitudinal pitching value of this aircraft can make it some what unstable..

The transition phase was a bit tricky as the flight dynamics are very sensitive to pitch inputs during transition


 THE TRANSITION

The transition  is a success and the VERTRON beta test crew prepares to land

Controlling the CG range is a super important thing in this aircraft as the weight balances needed to operate the VERTRON are very critical to maintaining the proper stress values on the aircraft

 

The test flight crew, after being vectored into landing position and cleared to land starts a VTOL landing approach...


THE SAFE LANDING

The approach is flown more like a helicopter then like an conventional aircraft because of the slow forward speeds at which the VERTRON can reach and even though she can handle slow flight very well maintaining appropriate engine power to each engine is important when in landing mode and even though there is a horizontal transmission connecting both engine via the main lifting wing she still has a tendency to yaw if asymmetrical engine power is applied during ultra slow flight.

The first few approaches were a bit hairy but we got the hang of it..

The best thing about this aircraft is that once you have a certain mastery of transitioning this aircraft and the CG range values at which she operates, it is then possible to make fairly speedy VTOL to conventional aircraft transition and this is very helpful in the landing phase when additional speed control values may be needed to clear obstacles or avoid them for that matter.

All in all the first flight proved very data full and we are taking the VERTRON to the next level of development with no further problems as noted

At the last minute we transitioned her and opted for a standard landing....
