New Rotowing Aircraft Designed For Vertical Take-Off
THE Rotowing, an airplane of unusual design, has been invented by Virgil Kutnar, of San Francisco, Calif. It is designed for taking off in vertical flight without any forward motion. Experiments with a small model have encouraged Kutnar to attempt the construction of a full sized plane. A sprocket chain attached to the motor supplies the power for turning the rotowings. A regulation motor and propeller cause forward flight.
