Back Kamov Ka-10
1949

Kamov Ka-10

When the Ivchenko helicopter engine became available, it was possible to develop the Ka-8 into the Ka-10, with better flight characteristics and reliability. The first Ka-10 flew in September 1949. It was followed by three more prototypes and eight Ka-10M pre-production models; the latter were distinguished by the fact that they had a different rotor assembly and an endplate fin tail unit instead of the single fin of the Ka-10. These helicopters were tested at length, but did not enter production or service.

Kamov Ka-10

Success of Ka-8 enabled Kamov to open his own OKB in 1948, by which time he had completed drawings for this improved end enlarged (but still single-seat) machine. Structure similar but refined. Engine completely new, designed by Ivchenko for this application with two stages of reduction gearing, freewheel with centrifugal clutch and improved power split between rotors. Electric started and engine-driven cooling fan. First hover by D.K.Yefremov September 1949. Four built, tested by AV-MF, first Soviet deck landing 7 Dec 1950, minor improvements in Ka-10M. 12 built for Coast Guard 1954. ASCC reporting name "Hat".
