Title:
GYRO GLIDER ROTATIONALLY BALANCED AROUND THE CIRCUMFERENCE.
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/048916
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The invention of interest aims to further improve the controllability of the gyro-plane design against random wind fluctuations with an improved, adjustable auto-center-gravity design. The particular design auto correctes the shift in the center of gravity and the direction of the side thrust engine automatically on the same frame. The design of interest is best suited for hovering gyro systems without ground tethering. Due to the novel design an airfloating gyro object is best positioned to the side winds with adjusted directional thrust and corrected center of gravity in real-time. The invention can be best described as a gyrokite with a balanced tail without ground thethering. The particular invention is also suitable for non- hovering, non-fixed power flights with superior balance. Obviously, the invention is not limited to the embodiments described in exemplified manner herein before and covers all variants there of. Thus, the described balancing circle around the geometric center of the gyroplane with a freely slide rotating weight balance (engine) could be a design of a semicircle with various angular sections. The freely slide rotating weight balance (engine) with a propellar could be an electric, or a gas engine with a garden variety of power options, ranging from hover control to powered flight. The use of the invention is also not limited to the current technologies, only. An exemplar creative use would be a light weight air floating explosive design weighing less than 400 gr with solar panel or wind charging systems. In such a setting, after being released into the air from a fighter aircraft, these systems have the capacity to stay afloat on the same spot for months. When couled with minute explosives, the particular designes are swallod by the engine of the coming fighter aircraft detonating in the engine. In a different setting, these systems could form a herd, a team of inter-communicating floating drones working towards the same goal. A team of intercommunicating gyroplanes can also be used to monitor wind speeds or else interlay internet or telephone communication on a fixed location and at a fixed altitude.

Claims:

1. A balancing circle around the geometric center of the Gyroplane with a freely slide rotating weight balance (engine) containing a propellar of thrust.

2. An Application of Claim 1, wherein the freely slide rotating weight balance (engine) containing a propellar of thrust locates to the correct position opposing the incoming wind due to the slanted angle of the system with respect to gravity for the hovering, fixed position.

3. An application of claim 1, wherein the extra weight of the slide rotating weight balance (engine) automatically optimizes the dynamics of the angle of the wind attack and the center of gravity setting with a proper thrust.

4. An Application of Claim 1, wherein the slide rotating weight balance (engine) is optionally fixed on a certain position at the balancing circle for non fixed, non hovering, controlled thrust flying mode.

5. An application of claim 1, wherein the described balancing circle around the

geometric center of the Gyroplane with a freely slide rotating weight balance (engine) containing a propellar of thrust can be applied to any kite and hanglider designs.

6. An Application of Claim 3, wherein the position of the slide rotating weight

balance (engine) containing a propellar can be adjusted manually or else automatically for directional flight.

7. An Application of Claim 4, wherein the passanger seating direction either is fixed to the main frame with the back tail or else to the engine position.

8. An Application of claiml, wherein the circumference of the balancing circle can be adjusted for the optimum balance with respect to gyroplane-design and size.

9. An Application of claim 1, wherein the optimum position of the balancing circle is adjusted along the vertical axis (up, down) with respect to the center of gravity, according the aeordynamics of the Gyroplane.

10. An application of claiml, wherein the excess energy of the main gyro-rotor in

strong winds is used for dynamo based battery charging in addition to the optional solar panels.

11. An application of claim 1, wherein the system is used for manned, unmanned

autonomous, and RC designs at all sizes and for cargo and passenger flight, as well as for surveillance, with electrical and gasoline powering systems.

12. An application of claiml, wherein the system is used with all main rotor designs and speeds, at all altitudes for both powered flight as well as for passive hovering and weak ground tethering (only power cable without anchoring) wind energy charging solutions.

Description:
Gyro Glider Rotationally Balanced Around The Circumference.

1. Field of The Invention:

The present invention relates to an upgraded gyroplane design, and more particularly to a gyroplane design with an additional control over the center of gravity and direction of the horizontal engine on the same frame. Sensing the direction of the attack wind, the particular design adjust the center of gravity, and the direction (as well as the thrust) of the horizontal engine in real-time allowing the system to float in a fixed position.

2. Background of The Invention:

As of 2017 there are various gyrocopter designs. The spectrum is various; starting from gyrokite toy designs, C gyro planes to one seated hobby designs and two seated commercial gyro-airliners, manned and unmanned versions of the gyro-plane designs are also used for various purposes ranging from hobby time toys, air transportation of goods and people and to air surveliance.

Gyro-desing with a passivelly rotating rotor-blade setting has an inherent balancing ability. The ability of balancing the attack wind automatically enables various gyro designs to glide in the wind passivelly or else in the motorized versions to run (fly) against the wind while keeping the gryroplane afloat or else climb.

Due to its inherent balancing nature, and being center of gravity and thrust of the horizontal engine are two main control mechanisms, a gyroplane design is easy to control
