I understand the benefit of a turbo charger to achieve sea level power at altitude. But is this really sea level performance? Even with minimal amount of fuel you must have still overloaded the A/C by around 200lbs...
How do you make sure you are not over-torqueing the living crap out of it?
Hi , sorry I don’t know your name , but I am glad to answer your question.
Rotorway manufacturer specification, is at sea level maximum boost 34 inch. on their supercharged version ,which is a very low boost , that produces the maximum torque .
So at sea level, with standard pressure and temperature, theoretically any Rotorway could lift that weight with maximum allowed boost and power . The helicopter is designed for that torque as Rotorway once wanted to built a 4 seat helicopter .
Rotorway has de- rated the max. take off weight to have some safety margin left in flight and for higher altitude .
Now with my own designed turbo altitude compensation system , using the same maximum 34 inch boost or torque , I wanted to demonstrate that safety margin is also available at much higher altitude with my turbo system, as proven in all my previous videos .
Rotorway has announced to bring out their own turbo system , most probably inspired by my success .They have discontinued the supercharged version .
I hope you are satisfied with my answer .
I do admit my water ballast test should have been good enough for me to prove it , but would you have believed it ?
