The Bearing Mechanism

The column and bearing incorporate a gear with four motors. The aircraft can be operated in one of three ways.

  1. Locked in place.
  2. The motors can be locked so the entire aircraft will not rotate.

  3. Motored in a circle.
  4. From controls in the aircraft, you can point the aircraft any direction you want. The motors have a clutching feature that allow them to release if the wind blows beyond a predetermined speed.

  5. Freely rotating.

You can let your aircraft rotate freely if you like. When the wind changes direction enough to rotate the aircraft, the whole aircraft rotates smoothly. The motors have built in governors that insure smooth starts and stops to the rotations.

The airplane is more stable on our platform that it was on it’s wheels.
