Hovering gyro aircraft

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6513752.

A fixed wing rotorcraft uses differential thrust between wing mounted propellers to provide counter torque when the rotor is being powered by a power source. The rotorcraft is comprised of a fuselage to which fixed wings are attached. A rotor is attached on an upper side of the fuselage and provides lift at low speeds while the wings provide a majority of the lift at high speeds. When at high speeds the rotor may be slowed to reduce advancing tip speed and retreating blade stall. Forward thrust and counter torque is provided by propellers mounted on either side of the fuselage or even on the wings.
