Saddest part of Schramm's story is that Windstar was a revolutionary craft and a credible threat to the existing rival Certified helicopter market.Comparable performance to a jet ranger, engine failure backup,at half the cost........Hell of a craft.We lost our deposit .....slated for production unit #66...they were to begin production once they reached 100 units.Saw it,touched it,sat in it...

the Heli cycle ? a real helicopter? ol BJ sent my brother a letter saying "putting a turbine into a rotorway " heli cycle" was impossible due to "viberations" he them had Eagle R&D buy up all the T62s they can find...the letter is amusing just like Frank with the rotormouse due to our use of some of his components.. like all helicopter builders only one is not full of crap,, and he was an immigrant Russian...

Basically, the company was stolen from Mr. Schramm by people who weren't intelligent enough to continue his work. That's why the Elete was left unfinished. Now you can buy the slower and heavier Exec model developed by the thieves, but if you really want to buy a quality, sport aviation chopper get a Helicycle.
