Back Gluhareff MEG-1X


Eugene Gluhareff established a development company in 1952 to carry out research into pressure-jet powered light helicopters. He built the MEG-1X personal strap-on helicopter rig which used a single-blade rotor with a tip-mounted G8-2 engine and followed this with the MEG-2X which had a two-blade rotor. His final design was the MEG-3X which was based on a dish-shaped platform on which the pilot would stand and a two-blade rotor revolving underneath the platform. No commercial development was undertaken.

Thank you.

Наши и ещё не то могут! Русским в принципе доступна антигравитация. По крйней мере я знаю принцип работы антигравитационного двигателя. И методы сжатия пространства, для полёта на другие планеты. но человечество не только не совершенно для обладания такими зананиями, но и вырождается в идиотов типа Буша старшего и младшего, Клинтона или Ельцина (дебила)т.д. Russia.

I am so impressed with the development of the Pressure Jet Engine, I would love to be able to see more of the research details, but can't find any more detaiils on Google.
